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 Lottery

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there's never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why ? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back -- not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It's back this week and it's been won first time out, so next week's jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order -- our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

he easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
