Halifax fundraisers Ben Moorhouse and Gaynor Thompson have added another sponsor to their charity challenge.

Crossleys Taxis, based at Dean Clough, are sponsoring the couple, who will walk the island of Rhodes in 48 hours in aid of The Steve Prescott Foundation.

The pair will undertake the challenge at the hottest time of the year - and will break records if they succeed.

Steve Prescott played Rugby League for St Helens, Hull, Wakefield, Ireland and was a GB Lions Tourist. He set-up the foundation after being diagnosed with Pseudomyxoma Peritonei, a terminal cancer.

“We are both extremely proud to call Crossleys Taxis one of our official sponsors,” said Ben. “Both our families have used Crossleys for years.

“Crossleys’ support shows they care for local people and we need the support of people from Halifax vocally and by sponsoring us.”

Mohammed Siddique of Crossleys Taxis said: “We are proudly sponsoring Ben Moorhouse and Gaynor Thompson for the extreme 2018 challenge.

“When I opened the email there was no doubt in my head, Crossleys wanted to be apart of this in any way shape or form. Ben and Gaynor have worked immensely hard over the years to help such a fantastic cause The Steve Prescott foundation, and keeping the memory alive.
