Wooden Spoon is excited to have been announced as the Official Charity Partner for Rugby League World Cup 2013 in England and Wales to further cement its status as the charity of rugby.
For every ticket bought with the promotional code SPOON
entered at the check out during RLWC2013 - which runs from October 26 until November 30 - £5 will be contributed to Wooden Spoon to be reinvested back into the host towns and cities which take part in the world cup.
Wooden Spoon will use the funds raised during the showpiece tournament to develop a long-term legacy within the Rugby Football League community which will in turn benefit disadvantaged children and young people throughout Britain.
Sally Bolton, RLWC2013 General Manager said: "We are delighted to be partnering with Wooden Spoon. The Rugby League World Cup is building to be fantastic for both England and Wales and it's great to have a community focussed charity on board to ensure all the local people involved feel the benefit of hosting such an event."
The RFL became a patron of Wooden Spoon in 2009 and since then has worked tirelessly alongside us on community programmes aimed at significantly improving the lives of 16-19 year olds who are currently not in education, employment or training.
Steve Holt, CEO of Wooden Spoon, said: "We look forward to continuing our work in Rugby League and we are all looking forward to some of the great things which I am sure will come out of our partnership with RLWC2013."
