Leading apparel manufacturers ISC, who supply some of the world’s leading Rugby League teams, have become the latest company to partner with Rugby League Cares, the sport’s official charity.
ISC has produced a range of bespoke RLC branded clothing, proceeds from the sale of which will go to the organization which looks to fund grants, welfare, heritage and benevolent projects.
As part of the agreement, launched at Headingley Carnegie by, among others, Leeds Rhinos Chief Executive Gary Hetherington, Sky Sports’ Mike Stephenson and RLC trustee Bev Risman, ISC and RL Cares are working together to create discounted kits for community teams.
Clubs, schools, colleges and university outfits will all benefit in a programme that is linked to the successful community game raffle. Those who sell raffle tickets will now have the opportunity to generate discount towards their next kit purchase.
RL Cares Chairman Terry Flanagan welcomed the association. “We are delighted that ISC has come on board as a sponsor of Rugby League Cares,” he said at the unveiling.
“ISC are becoming established as rugby league’s premier clothing brand and it’s fantastic to have their organisation behind our work. The connection they have here and in Australia is immensely helpful to us, both in raising awareness of Cares and assisting us with our work helping people throughout the game.
“Now that the Cares clothing range is out there, we hope that all Rugby League fans will get behind us and wear it with pride while at the same time aiding such worthy causes.”
Dan Drew, General Manager of ISC UK effected the link up. ‘’We are excited and honoured to become an official partner of RL Cares, it really opens up the ISC brand to the heart of the game,” he noted.
“The partnership reinforces our commitment to the game from top to bottom and we look forward to working with RL cares in developing the range and further links between us.’’
