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

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.
