Lockdown Letters for Gallery Oldham

The Lockdown Museum that Gallery Oldham are doing, and to which we will be submitting the pics of Roughyeds fans proudly wearing our NHS shirts, is to be expanded to specifically ask people for pieces of writing as well.

Fans who might like to write about their experience of living in the borough during the pandemic (irrespective of whether you’ve already sent in a picture or not) can upload a piece via the Lockdown Museum page or mail writings directly to Rebecca Hill at: Rebecca.Hill@oldham.gov.uk;

We are happy to support Oldham Council in this Lockdown Museum project, which will serve as a point of reference in years to come for anyone who wishes to learn more of what life was like in Oldham during the infamous Covid-19 pandemic of 2019/2020.

It will also give Oldham RLFC, as a club, the opportunity to further demonstrate the small, yet massively appreciative, role we played in thanking the NHS for the glorious work it did to save lives when the pandemic was at its worst.

Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
