Big Yellow Self Storage helps inner city rugby team continue their success on the pitch

Big Yellow Self Storage proudly supports a number of its stores’ local organisations and charities. With 37 London-based stores, Big Yellow was keen to help support the Southwark Tigers – the first inner city rugby club established in London.

Vernon Neve-Dunn, founder of the team, set it up in the early 2000’s in the hopes of bringing people from all walks of life together through the game of Rugby. The team started with limited equipment and used a pitch in the local park but it has quickly expanded into a fundamental part of the local community.

There are now nine teams in total, with players aged from 5-17 years. Vernon and the team welcome both boys and girls to Burgess park where they play and training is completely free.

Vernon says: “We hope to make rugby affordable and accessible to everyone, so the support we get from Big Yellow is invaluable in keeping the team going with little funding.”

Big Yellow is now a club sponsor, providing kit and storage for the Southwark Tiger’s training equipment.
