The Roughyeds


Happy to join The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning

​They call it The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning . . . that’s the nationwide Macmillan event which will be held this year on Friday, September 27 when groups all over the country make cakes and pastries and bring out their best china (or office mugs as the case might be) in aid of the Macmillan Nurses and their care of cancer sufferers.

We can’t promise the best china, but Oldham RLFC is delighted to take part in the nationwide event by holding a Coffee Morning in the club’s sponsors lounge at the Vestacare Stadium on Friday, September 27 from 10am to noon.

We’ll put on coffee and home-made cakes and ask for donations for Macmillan, who do such a wonderful job in the community.

Anne Kearns, a member of Oldham RLFC’s management team and one of the organisers of our Coffee Morning, said:

“One in every two of us will be affected by cancer in one way or another at some time in our lives and as a club with the community at heart and a club which relies on the support of the community it’s appropriate that we should do our best for Macmillan.”

Last year the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning raised an astonishing £26,914,382 nationwide.

Big cake lovers, their slogan on a TV advert is: “Let’s change lives with every slice . . .

Yes, let’s . . . in the Roughyeds’ sponsors lounge at the Vestacare Stadium on Friday, September 27 between 10am and noon. All welcome.

Everyone attending will be entered into a draw, the prize for which will be two tickets for the next play-off match at the Vestacare Stadium which will either be on Sunday, September 29 or on Sunday, October 6, all depending on the result of our home game against Newcastle or Doncaster on September 22. ends

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!
