Fred wins fan-of-the-year award

​Local rugby league fanatic Fred Halliwell has won £10,000 after being named Betfred Rugby League Super Fan of the Year only a few weeks after celebrating his 80th birthday.

The man who has kept Hollinwood ARLFC going for years beat nine other finalists to pick up the award and the cheque from Betfred boss Fred Done.

Fred has promised to donate half his prize money to his beloved Hollinwood club, to which he has devoted much of his life.

“I’m chuffed for Fred, who is dedicated to grassroots rugby league,”

said Fred Done

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.
