Funeral arrangements for Jim Hallas

​Jim Hallas’s funeral service will be at the Oldham Crematorium, Hollinwood on Thursday week, September 12 at 3pm and then back to the 3 C’s Club, Henshaw Street, Oldham.

With sincere condolences from everyone at Oldham RLFC, we are distributing details of Jim’s funeral on behalf of his daughter Gwendolen.

Jim died in the Royal Oldham Hospital on August 25 after a short illness. He was 89 and had supported Oldham Rugby for the best part of 80 years.

He watched Roughyeds all his life, home and away, and until only a month ago he travelled with friends to all games. This season he has travelled long distances to Whitehaven and Newcastle and has enjoyed ‘over nighters’ with fellow fans.

Jim was a popular and well-known member of the Roughyeds’ ‘Barmy Army’ and he will be sorely missed by those for whom red and white mean a lot more than other colours.

Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
