Send in your pictures of Life in Lockdown

OLDHAM Council is currently working on a project called ‘Oldham’s Lockdown Museum’, a digital project to record how life has changed in the town during the pandemic.

The idea is that the Council can then connect with people who might be feeling lonely or isolated at home, but also create an archive for future generations to understand a little about what Oldham life was like during the pandemic of 2020.

Each week the Council will set a theme to encourage people to send in photos and they will then be published the following week in a gallery on the Council website.

This week’s theme is ‘Sport and Exercise’ and Oldham RLFC has been asked to help and to take part.

Ideally, the Council would like photos to be with them by this Monday morning, July 13, so we are asking fans to send in their pictures of ‘Life in Lockdown’, with a sport and exercise theme, to us at the club so that we can send them off to the Council en bloc in order to meet their Monday morning request.

So please get cracking and upload your pictures by 5pm this Sunday, July 12, to the club’s email address: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

We will do the rest and thus play our part, as the borough’s professional rugby league club, in helping the Council to make a huge success of its ‘Lockdown Museum’ project.

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.
