Big Yellow in Twickenham have played a big part for the Dallaglio Flintoff Cycle Slam supported by Virgin Media by providing a free storage room for the storage of bicycles, kit and equipment before, during and after the ride.
Laurence Dallaglio and Freddie Flintoff had set the challenge to cycle from Olympia in Greece all the way to the Olympic Village, London in just 22 days starting on the 23rd April and riding a staggering 2,872km. The event was raising money for the “Dallaglio Foundation” which helps support Cancer Research UK funded ICGC project on Prostate Cancer genetics and the other charity is the “AF Foundation” which raises funds to build, develop and improve Child Rehabilitation & Physiotherapy units in the UK
Warwick Sleigh store manager of the Big Yellow in Wandsworth was invited to take part on the final day of the event cycling from Ashford Kent to Stratford London. On the 18th May ’12 Warwick Sleigh set off with 90+ riders on the final stage ride from Ashford Kent to the Olympic Village which was approximately 100km and to date the event has raised a humungous £1,866,378.18.
