Bartlett providing peace of mind to le Tour de Rugby League Cares 

Rugby League Cares is delighted to announce independent financial specialists The Bartlett Group as associate sponsors of the charity’s toughest-ever fundraising challenge, le Tour de Rugby League Cares

The Leeds-based insurance brokers, financial advisers and wealth management experts are supporting the 500-mile cycle ride by providing a bespoke insurance package for this unique event.

Bartlett, who are also making a generous donation to the fundraising effort, will have their logo feature prominently on the specially designed ride kit that is scheduled to be unveiled in late April.

Le Tour de Rugby League Cares takes place over six days from Sunday June 11 when 18 riders will set out from Biarritz on France’s rugged Atlantic coast following a testing and at times gruelling route across the continent to the Mediterranean beach at Canet-en-Rousillon near Perpignan.

The 18-strong peloton includes former Great Britain, Bradford and Salford player Nathan McAvoy and RL Hall of Fame member Adrian Morley, all of whom will have Bartlett’s specialist insurance cover keeping them safe.

Nav Uppal, the Partnership Manager at RL Cares, said: “We would like to thank the Bartlett Group for their fantastic support of the charity and le Tour de Rugby League Cares, which is a hugely important event for us.

“All the funds we raise on the ride will enable us to continue enhancing the lives of people of all ages in communities where rugby league is played.

“Knowing that Bartletts have the backs of our riders and staff during the ride provides peace of mind for everyone.”

Ian Roberts, Major Account Director for Bartlett, said: “Bartlett are really pleased to continue our longstanding support for Rugby League Cares through our association with this amazing event.

“We would like to wish all the brave riders who are taking on the challenge of le Tour de Rugby League Cares the very best of luck and urge rugby league fans everywhere to sponsor a rider and help the charity make a difference.”
