Just after the final whistle in the recent Bath Rugby victory over Toulon, Bath Rugby Foundation handed over a cycling jersey signed by the Bath Rugby squad to Flying Pig Renovations.
The team at Flying Pig were the headline sponsors of the French 400 cycling race, which saw 72 people cycle through Normandy in June, 2017.
As well as sponsoring the event, Andy and Kye Paradise from Flying Pig also donated considerable pedal power, taking part in the ride.
The French 400 raised more than £50,000 for Bath Rugby Foundation, which runs numerous award-winning programs helping disadvantaged children in Bath and the surrounding areas.
Flying Pig Renovations has also signed up as lead sponsors for this year’s fundraising cycle challenge – The Giro Di Toscana, which will see 100 cyclists pedal through the Italian countryside, with a choice between 50 and 85-mile routes on each of the three days.
Bath Rugby Club President and Foundation fundraiser, David Trick, said: “Flying Pig Renovation Company were a fantastic addition to the French 400 cycling challenge, not only as the lead sponsor but also due to their participation in the event. Directors, Andy and Kye Paradise both cycled every one of the 400km with their partners supporting from the touchline and assisting with various non-cycling requirements.
“It’s great when a sponsor understands and supports the work undertaken by the charity and Flying Pig definitely fits into this category. In addition to the role as lead sponsor they also individually raised a lot of money from friends, clients and colleagues who supported their efforts.
