Send in your pics of you in your NHS shirt

DANNY B, our friend, fan, backroom staff member and our social media guru, has started a digital display of fans in their new Oldham RLFC tee-shirts which support the NHS.

If YOU have one why not take a selfie, or get somebody to take a picture of you, resplendent in your rainbow-coloured tee-shirt, and tweet it or email it through to Danny at: danielbamber1993@gmail.com

A few fans have already done it and their pictures are already out on social media. Go to the club’s Twitter platform to see the images that have already been tweeted.

Follow their example and when we have an appropriate number of images, we’ll produce some sort of collage for the website and maybe send it to Gallery Oldham for the digital Lockdown Museum they’re doing as a reminder of what life was like in Oldham during the 2020 Covid-19 Lockdown.

The part played by the NHS in the battle against the virus will never be forgotten and will go down in history as the perfect example of what can be achieved when people go above and beyond the call of duty and put their own lives at risk in the service of others.

We are proud, as a club, to applaud and recognise the wonderful and courageous work of the NHS by commissioning these special tee-shirts and donating half the profits from their sale to NHS charities.

We sold 118 in little more than a week and, to be honest, we would not be at all surprised if we get more inquiries as people who have them start to get out and about in the colours of the rainbow.

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.
