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 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.
