The Roughyeds


Local schools at Oldham-Skolars game

MORE than 150 young people from Hathershaw College and 12 local primary schools, with teachers, are expected to be at the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday (March 24) when we entertain London Skolars in Betfred League 1.

They will be guests of the Roughyeds — and their parents will get in for a cut-price £5.

It’s the latest of several community projects we are adopting in a bid to raise awareness of the club and increase attendances.

The invitation is extended to all local schools that are signed up to The Oldham Pledge — a nationally-recognised scheme intended to give young people the best chance of becoming rounded citizens and fully prepared for work and life.

One of 14 pledges they can make is to attend sporting or creative events — and that’s where the town’s rugby league club comes into the equation.

“We’ve been working with The Oldham Pledge people for a while and we’ll continue to do so,”

said Roughyeds chairman Chris Hamilton.

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.
