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.

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.
