Community clubs urged to make a date with Ronseal and England Rugby League

Community Rugby League clubs across England are being given a unique opportunity – a 2020 makeover from Ronseal, the country’s most trusted and reliable woodcare brand, with hands-on support from England Rugby League stars.

Ronseal, in partnership with England Rugby League, is launching ‘Fix up your club’ – an innovative way of lending a helping hand to the grassroots game. Two community clubs will win a free DIY day involving the Ronseal team and two England internationals.

For each of the two clubs chosen it promises to be a fantastic experience for club members, supporters and the wider community, with opportunities to meet world class players as well as to get premises spick-and-span for the Spring.

Kristie Blackford-Mills, Brand Manager at Ronseal UK, said:

“We are delighted to launch Fix Up Your Club, our first major initiative with the RFL. We set ourselves the goal of finding a partner aligned with our core values of performance, durability and integrity, and we believe this activation perfectly brings together those values that we share with the RFL by allowing us to give back to our core fans. It is very exciting to now begin the process of sounding out those two clubs.”

RFL Head of Partnerships, Bobby Bahadori adds:

“Ronseal is a well-known and trusted brand which, like Rugby League, has always remained true to its grassroots, so we are delighted that the company is demonstrating its commitment to Rugby League – and in particular the community game.

“The Ronseal team will come down to your club to give it the DIY job it deserves. Plus, they will bring with them two international England Rugby League stars to lend a hand.

‘Fix up your club’ day will be a fun day for all the family, so get your applications in now!”

Any community club in England in need of a makeover can apply by downloading a form from www.rugby-league.com/fixupyourclub. Competition closes on 19 January 2020.

The Rugby Football League announced a four-year deal with Ronseal in July 2018, the woodcare brand’s first foray into sports sponsorship. The deal sees the brand feature on the playing shirts of the England Men’s, Women’s, Knights, Wheelchair, Academy and Youth squads until the end of 2021, which includes the 2021 Rugby League World Cup.

Ronseal provide a premium and wide-ranging selection of products to help you get a professional looking finish on your next DIY project. It does exactly what it says on the tin, so you can do exactly what you want to your home.

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.
