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

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
