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

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

he 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!
