OLDHAM RLFC will have a stall and will be well represented at a barbecue tomorrow (Thursday, July 11) for the staff at Royal Oldham Hospital and its key partners.
Invitations have gone out to local dignitaries, including the Mayor, Councillor Ginny Alexander and her Consort husband, Mr Adrian Alexander, a former Oldham RLFC player, and local MPs.
The aim is to welcome a community team which will be joining the NHS’s Oldham Care Organisation later this month.
Among others, invitations have gone out to local police, fire, ambulance services, Radio Cavell, Maggie’s, Oldham RLFC, Oldham Athletic and Pet Therapy Dogs.
Radio Cavell will provide the music.
Headed by club chairman Christopher Hamilton, Oldham RLFC will be well represented and will have a stall which will reflect the club’s role within the local community and as a founder member of the Rugby Football League.
Said Mr Hamilton:
“We are absolutely delighted to accept our invitation and to share in an event which will reflect on the wonderful work done by the NHS and its partners within the Oldham community.”
