Rob Burrow My Year With Motor Neurone

Tune in to BBC 2 at 7pm tonight (Tuesday) to watch a special documentary in which Leeds Rhinos legend Rob Burrow talks about his fight against motor neurone disease and tells how his rugby league career prepared him for the challenge.

The programme will now be shown at 7pm tonight (Tues) after being put back 24 hours.

In this moving documentary the former Rhinos superstar shows the same spirit in his current battle as the one that made him a rugby league star and one of the Rhinos’ all-time greats.

Among his family and friends who talk about this remarkable young man are his former Leeds team mates, Oldhamers Kevin Sinfield and Barrie McDermott.

Rob started to raise awareness for research into motor neurone disease, in which he has made regular appearances on BBC Breakfast, after meeting former Scotland RU legend and fellow sufferer Doddie Weir.

To learn all about Rob’s inspirational battle, and the role played in it by the famed ‘Rugby League Family’, tune in to BBC 2 at 7pm tonight.

Club Cash

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

The 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!
