Infinity Works renew their support for the Ride to Wembley

Rugby League Cares has secured the continued support of Infinity Works for the charity’s biggest fundraiser of the year, the UK Red Ride to Wembley.

The Yorkshire-based IT services company has renewed its sponsorship of the gruelling challenge that will see 26 riders cycle more than 300 off-road miles from Old Trafford to the Challenge Cup final next week.

Company founder Paul Henshaw was a rider on last year’s inaugural Ride to Wembley from Headingley Stadium and though he is unavailable to take part this time, Infinity Works are keen to remain involved.

Paul said: “The team at Infinity Works are huge sports fans, and have a close relationship with the Rugby League community.

“Last year was a gruelling challenge, but it was incredibly satisfying to contribute and be part of it.

“Learning about the support that the RL Cares team provide, and hearing first-hand stories from Keith Senior, Paul Highton and Chev Walker on the battles players face during and after their careers, made it a really rewarding experience, and fantastic achievement by everybody involved.

“I’m sure they’ll smash it again, and top last year’s efforts!”

The riders this year include six former Rugby League internationals: Paul Highton returns for another long-distance ride on behalf of the charity and is joined by Robbie Hunter-Paul, Andy Lynch, Mick Cassidy, Nathan McAvoy and Gareth Ellis, who as captain of Hull FC won the Challenge Cup at Wembley in both 2016 and 2017.

Chris Rostron, the Head of Rugby League Cares, said: “We have a star-studded line-up on the UK Red Ride to Wembley in 2018 and are delighted that Infinity Works are again giving us their support.

“It’s a shame that Paul can’t make it but it’s good to know that he’ll be with us in spirit and we’re looking forward to seeing him and his family at Wembley for the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup final.”
