16 June 2022:
Halifax Panthers Wheelchair Rugby League Club are pleased to announce that they will be sponsored by Robert Lee Distribution Ltd for the forthcoming year, arguably the UK’s largest independent distributor of bathrooms, showers and plumbing products, supplying retailers and merchants.
Their head office is located in Waltham Abbey and branches at Swindon, Tamworth & Manchester.
Donna Turner, chair of Halifax Wheelchair RLC, said “ the club were the trailblazers of the sport back in 2005, and finished top of the Wheelchair Super League’s 2022 regular season. We are now embarking on the play off rounds hoping to be crowned Grand Final winners in October.
Founder and current treasurer of the club Malcolm Kielty MBE highlighted that “ this is an expensive sport to run, costing some £15k a year in Venue hire, equipment and transport costs.
“Whilst the club members fund raise themselves, to have this support is a great boost and we cannot thank Daryl Catanach and Adele Green, of Robert Lee Distribution Ltd, enough for their help in the arrangements. Knowing that we have secured a main sponsor for the forthcoming twelve months means we can invest in the young players which will be the stars of the future .”
“We hope that our partners and the general business sector of Calderdale will support our new sponsors wherever they can.”
