A vast array of celebrities have gathered together to show their support of National Road Safety Week by autographing or decorating cycle helmets. The Brain Injury Group has been working tirelessly for months in an attempt to get as many Celebrity figures on board as possible. Some of the supporters include the Harlequins rugby squad, Sunetra Sarker and fellow Strictly Come Dancing stars Pixie Lott, Brendan Cole, Anton du Beke, Kristina Rihanoff, Steve Backshall, Judy Murray and Len Goodman. They have all all signed one helmet and Danny MacAskill’s Drop & Roll professional street trials cycling team also took part.
The first person to sign up to the idea was double Olympic gold medallist rower and adventurer James Cracknell he believes his cycle helmet saved his life. A particular highlight of this campaign is the helmet designed and signed by The Snowman creator Raymond Briggs.
All the helmets were generously donated by Leisure Lakes Bikes who were enthusiastic in supporting this campaign.
The helmets will be auctioned by The brain Injury Group throughout Road Safety Week and all money raised from their sale will go to ‘BRAKE’ to continue its fantastic work. To see the line-up of helmets and to place your bid visit, click here.
