We are proud to have been a main sponsor of the 2017 Club Together bike ride in aid of the Wooden Spoon Charity.
Founded in 1983, the charity harnesses the spirit and values of rugby to positively transform the lives of disadvantaged and disabled children and young people across the UK and Ireland. In the UK, one child in every hundred suffers from a lifelong disability that will profoundly affect his or her ability to lead a full and happy life.
In addition to the Wooden Spoon, several community initiatives will also benefit from the fundraising, with each participating rugby club having the opportunity to nominate a local charity of their choice.
The ride, which took place over the 8th, 9th & 10th September, was challenging; 320 miles visiting each of Norfolk’s rugby clubs on the journey. Despite the heavy rain and strong winds, the riders persevered and exceeded their original fundraising target by a massive amount, raising over £125,000.
Validus extends its warmest congratulations to all the riders and special thanks to all the organisers, who worked so hard to make it happen.
