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.

Club Cash

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

The 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!
