Oldham RLFC very happy with NHS tee-shirt sales

IN only nine days, the special tee-shirt commissioned by Oldham Rugby League Club in appreciation of the fantastic front-line work done by the NHS was ordered by 118 people from all over the country.

Priced at £29, and with half the profit on sales going to NHS charities, tee-shirts will be heading out along the full length of the M62 corridor from Liverpool to Hull; from Kent in the south to Spennymoor and to Sunderland in the north; and to many other counties in between such as Surrey, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Wiltshire.

“Given the short time available and the ‘spread’ across the UK, we are very happy indeed at the public response,” said the club chairman Chris Hamilton.

“We would like to thank everyone who has taken part and who will be wearing shirts that reflect the wonderful work of the NHS at all times but especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Deadline for the receipt of orders was midnight on Sunday, June 28.


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.
