Don’t miss the deadline for ordering our NHS tee-shirts

A reminder that time is fast running out for anyone intending to order one of our special tee-shirts dedicated to the magnificent work of the NHS during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The online ordering facility for this particular item shuts down at 5pm this Saturday, July 25, so don’t delay if, like many others, you love the look of the smart, rainbow-coloured ‘top’ with the NHS logo prominently-placed on the front.

Half the profits from the sale of this topical tee-shirt, which reflects public admiration of the NHS during these desperately difficult days, will go to NHS charities. It retails at £29 for all sizes, ranging from extra small youths at 26″ to 6XL at 54″.
Said club chairman Christopher Hamilton:

“We are still getting orders from people all over the UK, most recently from Chesterfield in Derbyshire and from two people in Scotland.”

Sizes are as follows:

XSY 26″; SY 28″; MY 30″; LY 32″; XLY 34″;

SA 38″; MA 40″; LA 42″; XLA 44″; 2XL 46″; 3XL 48″; 4XL 50″; 5XL 52″; 6XL 54″.

Order online here and either pay for postal delivery or confirm that you will collect from the club. When the new bulk order arrives at the club — in approx two weeks — collection times will be publicised.

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
