First Roary’s Pride meeting on Saturday

Roary’s Pride members are reminded that their first get-together takes place TOMORROW (Saturday, May 18) , in the social club at the Vestacare Stadium, from 9am to 10.30am.

Please note that, for this inaugural meeting, parents need to stay with their children because Murgy, Roary and Sophie, who are organising and running ‘Pride’ haven’t yet got essential safeguarding needs in place.

In any event they would love parents to be present at the ‘off’ so the adults can get an ideas of what’s going on and what will be going on in subsequent sessions.

Emergency calls-out permitting, there will be a fire engine and fife-fighters present as well as three members of the playing squad in club captain Gareth Owen, Danny Bridge and Harry Maders — three Oldham-born local lads who are proud to play for their home-town team and proud to be supported by Roary and his club members.

Children will be able to chat with the players, ask them questions and get their autographs.

Certificates will be available for those members who still haven’t got them.

Anyone wishing to turn up and become a member can do so, but they will need the annual membership fee of £10 plus an adult presence to supervise.

Said Murgy (Dave Muratroyd):

“We hope as many members as possible will come to this first session so that everybody can get to know each other and make new friends.

“This first meeting will also act as a ‘taster’ for things to come so it really is in everybody’s interests to turn up for this opener. Roary especially is really looking forward to seeing everybody.”

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.
