Pass it On Project — Website Launch Event

In December 2018, The Oldham Rugby League Heritage Trust was awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund in order to hand over their impressive memorabilia collection to Oldham council.

The project will ensure the long term preservation of this historically important collection which is recognised as one of the best in the world in either code of rugby. Full cataloguing will also make the items more accessible to researchers and digitisation will bring these objects to a wider audience via the new website.

In short the collection will benefit from being located in a proficient, professionally maintained, museum / gallery environment.

The task has been realised thanks to the grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, with the help of several volunteers and the cooperation of the staff at Gallery Oldham and the Oldham Local Studies and Archive.

The Project called The “PASS IT ON” is due for completion in December 2019 and will coincide with the opening of the new website for the Heritage Trust. A launch event to celebrate the conclusion and success of the project will take place at: The Education Suite, “Gallery Oldham”, Greaves Street, Oldham, OL1 1AL on:

Saturday December 7th from 11am to 2pm.

The Mayor of Oldham has accepted an invitation to attend and we hope to see representatives from the Oldham ex-players association.

Everyone is invited to attend and the Trust would be glad to see a good turn out for this event.

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.
