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.

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
