Guides and Brownies to fly the flag for Roughyeds

WE will welcome the leaders and girls from the Chadderton-based 26th Oldham Rainbow, Brownie and Guide unit to the Vestacare Stadium on Sunday.

The girls, who will be our flag bearers at the game against Coventry Bears (3pm kick-off), are looking forward to their first Roughyeds experience.

The group’s Lisa Rylands said:

“The girl-guiding experience is all about fun and friendship and with that in mind we were delighted to accept this invitation from Oldham RLFC.”

The 26th Oldham unit has been giving girls the Guiding experience for 26 years on a weekly basis with the same leaders.

They are one of many similar units in Oldham and hundreds more across Great Britain. each giving girls the opportunity to learn new skills; earn qualifications; experience international travel and much more, all with fun at the core of everything they do.

Girlguiding needs more adult leaders and girls. If anyone is interested please visit Girlguiding | The Leading UK Charity for Girls & Young Women where more information can be found.

A reminder too that Oldham Foodbank will also be at Sunday’s game in another of our community initiatives. Foodbank personnel will be at the Vestacare Stadium by 2pm and they will set up a collection point inside the ground where fans can leave their donations of tinned and long-life packaged foods.

Foodbank will be grateful for all long-life foods, but they have plenty of baked beans and are down on items such as tinned fruit, tinned rice puddings and toiletries such as soap, toothpaste and deodorants.

Led by club chairman Chris Hamilton, our management team is keen to see that Oldham RLFC is actively assisting an organisation which works wonders to help those in need.

They can do that, of course, only with assistance from all of us and this is an opportunity for the Oldham club and its supporters to do our bit for fellow Oldhamers who need our help.

We are confident that Roughyeds fans won’t let that cry for help fall on deaf ears.

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.
