The Roughyeds


Buy online and give ORSA a tonic

ORSA (Oldham’s Roughyeds Supporters’ Association) officials wish to thank fans who have signed up with the easyfundraising scheme and in some cases have already made purchases that qualified for donations to the cause.

As this is a long-term fund-raising idea, ORSA wishes to ensure that momentum for the scheme is maintained by increasing awareness to the wider fan base and ensuring that it becomes a habit of supporters who shop online.

The scheme could ultimately raise substantial funds that will benefit the support ORSA gives to the Roughyeds’ playing and coaching staff.

If fans who shop online, for goods or travel arrangements, take the idea on board they will be helping to give that support without any cost to themselves.

When sponsorship is difficult to obtain and funding arrangements for the game as a whole are looking precarious, that in itself would maintain confidence in what is valuable to all who care about the future of Oldham RLFC.

Details are can be found here under the ORSA banner and on the ORSA Twitter account at @RoughyedSupport.

However, as a brief summary, it relates to a scheme in which donations are made by the retailer/organisation with whom you have made an online purchase, as a thank-you for that purchase.

To connect to the scheme, please visit the website at www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/orsa/ where you can register and view the offers available with any of over 3,500 retailers etc.

The offers vary from time to time and can be quite seasonal, an example of that being especially good offers on holiday/travel bookings at this time of year.
Please spread the word to fans and friends alike.

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
