In 2021/2022, Big Box was the lead sponsor for The Mothership. We supported a female rowing crew of working-mothers, taking part in the gruelling 3,000 mile Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge. The crew completed the Challenge in 40 days, coming second overall in their category and raising over £70K for three charities.
