Your club needs YOU in the Club Cash lottery

IN these critical and unprecedented times Oldham RLFC, like all other clubs, is having to live through a period of nil income through the turnstiles.

We cannot stress too much, therefore, how much the club’s future well-being will hinge to a large degree on the response we get to our current appeal for more fans to join our weekly Club Cash lottery.

Even before the current national and international crisis we wrote in the match-day programme for the Promotion Final against Newcastle Thunder at the Vestacare Stadium in October last year that we relied on funding from sources such as Club Cash to keep the club’s head above water.

That reliance is even more important now and the club is therefore repeating its recent appeal for more people to join Club Cash which costs only £1 a week.

Last August there was an increase in weekly prize money of approximately £1,275, taking the amount of guaranteed money to be won each week to £3,100, which includes a WEEKLY first prize of £2,000.

In addition to the guaranteed prize pot there’s a rollover jackpot of £500 a week which, if it isn’t won on any particular week, rises by £500 each week to a maximum of £10,000.

The guaranteed WEEKLY first prize went up from £1,000 to £2,000. The second prize remained the same, £250, and the third prize went down slightly from £125 to £100, but there is now a fourth prize of £50 and two prizes each of £25 plus 65 consolation prizes of £10 . . . and then there’s the jackpot, which isn’t to be sniffed at either.

You get all those chances to win for just £1 a week and that isn’t going up. You can’t get a cup of coffee for that!

The draw takes place every Wednesday and the results are given each week on the website

We can’t stress to much how important it is for the future well-being of the club to increase income from Club Cash.

We know all too well what happens when a club isn’t financially sustainable — remember 1997? — and even back in the days when we would have thought the current world-wide pandemic was something out of a science fiction film we learned from the world of football that there were financial crises at Bury FC and at Bolton Wanderers.

The world-wide threat to professional sport as we know it is here and it’s real so if you’re not a member of our Club Cash lottery please give serious consideration to joining now.

You can download a standing order form and instruct your bank to pay £4.35 monthly, £13 quarterly, £26 half-yearly or £52 annually.

You then send in the form to the club’s lottery co-ordinator John McAndrew at Oldham RLFC, Vestacare Stadium, Whitebank Road, Oldham OL8 3JH.

Please do not send it to the bank. It needs to go to John at the club.

Alternatively, you can do a bank transfer of £10 or £20 to Oldham Rugby League Football Club, sort code 23-18-84, account number 19684341 and give your telephone number as a reference.

We will then contact you by phone when the money arrives to set up your lottery membership.

Many thank in anticipation of your support in these critical and unprecedented times.

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.
