Chris and David's fundraising efforts will support Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, who are investing over £1 million into research, in order to understand how these lymphomas arise and develop more effective treatments.

Simon Hetherington, Dealer Development Director, says: "We are delighted to be able to support Chris and David on the Big Cricket Ride. Its a fantastic project for a great charity. Providing the new Kia Sportage as support vehicles is a practical way for us to support their efforts, and at the same time extend our involvement with cricket beyond the Kia Oval."
