‘Hilly’s’ heart-felt fund-raising

RAY Hill, former Oldham RLFC commercial manager and well-known figure on the local rugby league scene, has completed the ascent of the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise funds for The Ticker Club, a registered charity affiliated to the British Heart Foundation which supports work at the North-West Heart Centre and clinics across the region.

With family and friends he climbed Pen-y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside on a sponsored effort and as a big thank-you to the Heart Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital for saving the life of his brother Peter.

Said Ray, or “Hilly” as he is known to hundreds of rugby league people across Oldham and beyond:

“It was a close call for Peter but thanks to the love and support of his family and friends and the brilliance of the surgeons, doctors and nursing staff at Wythenshawe he’s now making a great recovery.”

Peter has now volunteered to be a patient visitor for The Ticker Club and his role is to support patients who are about to have open heart surgery —- an ordeal he has experienced three times himself.

You can help Ray to raise funds on-line for The Ticker Club by visiting his Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge page at:

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.
