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 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.
