FIRST it was NHS tee-shirts, now its Oldham RLFC face masks (see image).
Roughyeds (our nickname) sent out a total of 164 specially commissioned tee-shirts in support of the NHS — 118 in the first wave and another 46 in the last few days.
Half the money raised from these sales will go to NHS charities.
Like the rainbow-coloured tee shirts before them, face masks are also going out to people all around the UK.
The latest batch of tee-shirts went overseas to Greece and Australia as well as to Huntly and Linlithgow in Scotland, Wakefield, Stockport, Chesterfield, Wigan and Helsby in Cheshire, plus a lot more to Oldham fans.
Sales of the shirt are now closed, but the sale of face masks has only just started and the early indications are that they will prove to be, at the very least, every bit as popular as the shirts.
Said club chairman Chris Hamilton: “It was great and very encouraging to sell 164 tee-shirts in recognition of the NHS’s wonderful work during COVID-19 and now we’re getting plenty of orders for Oldham Rugby face masks, which are also coming in from far and wide.”
They are priced at £1.99 each, or three for £5, and there’s a £1 charge for postage and packing
They are re-usable and fully machine washable. They feature the club crest over the mouth and have straps that hook over the ears. They are adult sizes only.
We are expecting delivery in 14 days.
