Coffee Morning raised £237 for MacMillan

​OLDHAM RLFC is delighted to announce that their recent Coffee Morning in aid of MacMillan Nurses Cancer Care raised £237.48 pence in little more than two hours of chatting, drinking coffee, eating cakes and socialising generally.

The final figure included a donation from CDX Security of Warrington, who were big-match sponsors when Roughyeds beat Doncaster 22-12 in the Qualifying Semi-Final of the Betfred League 1 play-offs and will sponsor again this coming Sunday, October 6, when we go head to head with Newcastle Thunder at the Vestacare Stadium for the right to win promotion to the Betfred Championship.

Needless to say our thanks go out to CDX and its managing director John Roddy, whom we will be delighted to see with his party and guests at the game on Sunday.

Roughyeds finished second in the league to Whitehaven, who go up automatically.

Back to the Coffee Morning and the club wishes to thank everyone who supported it and thus helped Roughyeds to be involved in ‘The Biggest Coffee Morning in the World‘ which is what MacMillan call the day they set aside annually for groups all over the country to hold such events.

Anne Kearns, who ran it for Roughyeds in partnership with Lynda McAndrew, said:

“It was a huge success and I’m sure we’ll be doing it again. We had a good turn-up of people, everyone enjoyed the morning and, on behalf of the club, Lynda and I would like to thank everyone for supporting it.”

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
