ORSA’s raffle with a difference

FANCY going behind the scenes and seeing what it’s REALLY like to be an Oldham player on game day ?

Now’s your chance . . . courtesy of an ORSA raffle with a difference which has four prizes, all based on a Roughyeds’ rugby theme.

Tickets, costing £1 a strip, will be on sale inside the Vestacare Stadium when Leon Pryce’s Workington Town are here on Sunday.

Winners can, if they prefer, opt for an alternative prize such as a bottle of wine, but ORSA officials believe lots of fans will love to win one of these four major prizes:

  1. A match-day experience for one, sharing dressing room and dug-out and maybe acting as water carrier before dining with players after a game, to be mutually agreed with Scott.
  2. BECOME the club and team mascot at a game this season, to be arranged.
  3. WIN two places for match-day hospitality and be presented with a signed ball.
  4. GO home with a Roughyeds shirt and a ball, both signed by Adam Neal.

The four lucky winners will be announced by John Davies over the public address system on Sunday and invited into the hospitality suite after the game to sort out their prizes.

Holder of the first ticket to be drawn out will choose one of the four prizes and the second winner will select from the remaining three, and so on.

It is relevant to point out that the offer of the ‘match-day experience’ prize followed discussions between ORSA and Scott, who is keen to have his players involved with supporters on community initiatives like this, as and when appropriate.

Scott and the players value and appreciate the support they get from ORSA (Oldham Roughyeds Supporters Association), who in turn rely on the backing of fans to go about their business.

Get your raffle tickets here and support your club
You can join ORSA for £10 a year subscription or back the association in several ways (see John McAndrew or Sheila or Grant Somerville) but, more immediately, get your raffle tickets on Sunday and before the season is out you could be in dressing room and dug-out, getting to the very heart of being an Oldham player.

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
