Chief executive of Travel Village Group Phil Nuttall said: “We’re a family business and proud of our Lancashire routes here in Blackpool, so we’re thrilled to be able to show our support to not just a local team, but one that promotes values that every family should live up to.

“The touch team at Typhoons RUFC are a welcome representation of an inclusive family and our business has so many values aligned with the team, particularly with regards to supporting mental and physical health, so we felt this was a natural fit for the company.

“We’re proud to endorse the team and wish all the members every success on and off the pitch.”

Kris Barber Midgley, club sponsorship and development officer, said: “In our four years since the club’s inception, we’ve been blown away by the support of our local community and by the businesses that continue to show that Lancashire is a welcoming and inclusive county.

“We’re thrilled to welcome The Travel Village as one of our newest sponsors for the 2022/2023 and 2023/24 seasons and we are all looking forward to wearing another symbol of local allyship upon our kit.”
