Way back in the 80’s Pete Marquis started a small skip hire company and from the company’s modest beginnings the business has now expanded into many other areas including Civil Engineering, Demolition Plant Hire and Waste Management services. The groups activities, projects and vehicles are a familiar sight across the region.
Although Pete’s business sector is tough, practical and very down-to-earth, he has a heart of gold and continually raises large amounts of money for charitable causes. Every year he hosts a clay pigeon shoot at Blackpool gun club at Greenhalgh in aid of North West Blood Bikes Lancs & Lakes. NWBB are invited to take the Gazebo and liveried bikes to join in with the activities including a mobile bar, (lemonade for the riders!) barbecue and music. This year we even helped out manning the clay traps and scoring the shooters. Each year all the proceeds from the event are in the thousands of pounds. We also know that further amounts Pete receives unexpectedly from his other activities are also donated in supporting NWBB. All without great fuss. But this month we celebrate and thank Pete Marquis
