The Captain’s Competition

We’ve had some great photos tweeted for this competition and it’s safe to say The Captain has had a busy month! We’ve seen him out on his bike, dressed up as a snowman, having a swim, with the England Netball vice-captain, taking a tour of football grounds, relaxing on an Emirates flight and even dancing on a carnival float!

The competition is open until 16th February so keep tweeting your photos to @cardinalcaptain for a chance to win £500 of Love2Shop High Street gift-vouchers. If you haven’t got a mask, contact your account manager and we’ll send you one. The winner will be announced in the March brochure. We look forward to seeing your photos!

Lifting of Sanctions on Iran

Iran SanctionsOn Saturday 16th January 2016, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported that Iran had performed its obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with respect to its nuclear programme.

As a result of this announcement, the US and EU were obliged by the JCPOA to lift many of the economic and financial sanctions which had closed international markets to Iranian business and trade.

As a result of this, we are now once again importing and exporting to Iran. For more information contact the commercial team on 0845 077 4060 or email commercial-team@cardinalmaritime.com.

The Rucksack Project

Rucksack & VanWe delivered a load of rucksacks to The Wellspring this weekend, taking part in their Rucksack Project.

The Wellspring put out a call for donations of rucksacks filled with essentials including a sleeping bag, hat, scarf, flask, fleece, toothbrush etc. to be distributed to homeless and rough sleepers in Stockport.

Team Cardinal jumped at the chance to support a charity that’s close to our hearts, with our very own Charlie McGonagle delivering the rucksacks the day after our Christmas Party! For more information about The Wellspring, click here.

Cardinal Kitchen Takeover

Wellspring Kitchen

Cardinal Maritime recently took over The Wellspring’s kitchen to serve a three-course meal to homeless people in Stockport.

The Wellspring is a resource centre for homeless and disadvantaged people. It’s a worthy cause that Cardinal Maritime have supported for some time now and we thought it’d be good to give their usual volunteers a night off and roll our sleeves up and get into the heart of the action

A team of twelve spent the evening serving food in the kitchen, handing out clothes and generally tidying up. It was a great opportunity to spend some time and learn more about the charity.

The Prince’s Trust Awards

IMG_0495bCardinal Maritime Group were delighted to sponsor the Rising Star Award at The Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards last night.

The event took place at St George’s Hall in Liverpool and brought together supporters, staff, volunteers, Trust-supported young people and other members of The Prince’s Trust community.

The Rising Star Award recognises young people who despite having faced substantial personal obstacles are in sustainable employment as a result of a Prince’s Trust programme.

Ryan Smith won the award having overcome bullying, caring for his disabled father and developing anger issues when he could no longer cope. His anxiety affected his confidence and health but The Prince’s Trust Team programme helped Ryan find his strengths and let his confidence follow. Ryan now works as a cameraman for a local housing association.

Ryan was delighted to win the award which was presented by our Financial Director Liam McGonagle.
