Jim Hallas's funeral

​The funeral of lifelong Oldham fan Jim Hallas at Oldham Crematorium next Thursday, September 12, at 3pm, will be a celebration of Jim’s life and will not be a sombre occasion, said his daughter Gwendolen.

“He was 89, he had a good life and he would want us to celebrate it rather than mourn it,” said Gwendolen, who extends an open invitation to everyone who will be at the Crematorium to join her afterwards at the 3 C’s Club in Henshaw Street, Oldham.

She said there will be no formal dress code and Roughyeds replica jerseys would be very appropriate.

“Oldham Rugby was a massive part of his life,” added Gwendolen. “He was part of a fans’ group that took him all over the country watching Oldham and I know how much he would like to see Roughyeds jerseys at his funeral.”

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.
