The Roughyeds


The Property Buying Company links up with Roughyeds

ANOTHER sponsorship ‘national’ has agreed a deal with Oldham RLFC for the first time.

Only days after the announcement that Purpose Business and Marketing Ltd had become one of the club’s new kit sponsors, it was revealed that The Property Buying Company would also feature on home and away kit in 2019.

The company already sponsors Manchester Giants, the professional basketball club, and it was looking for more exposure in the Greater Manchester area.

Marketing manager Chris Hemingway, who works from the Leeds office, is a rugby league fan who supports Batley Bulldogs.

His rugby league contacts, including those at Loverugbyleague.com, a specialist website, led him to believe that Roughyeds were likely to be a leading force in Betfred League 1 this year and, therefore, a club with which his company would like to forge a sponsorship partnership.

Claiming to be the UK’s leading house buyer, the Property Buying Company also does considerable business in the Midlands, hence its sponsorship links with Coventry Bears.

Hemingway has only been with the company since last August and his remit is to get it as much exposure as he can.

He said:

“We were already in with Coventry Bears and when we looked at following up our Giants Basketball link with another sponsorship deal in the Manchester area, Oldham RLFC looked the perfect fit.

“We expect Roughyeds to do well this year and we are delighted to do a business deal with them.”

Said club chairman Chris Hamilton:

“The feeling is mutual. Any deal of this kind is aimed at mutual benefit and we trust both parties will find benefits in the agreement.

“It was good to do business with Chris and the company and to learn that we were dealing with a rugby league man from Batley.”

More kit sponsorship deals will be announced in the next few days.

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.
