Sponsors Back on Board for 2021

OLDHAM RLFC is delighted to report more good news on sponsorship — a crucial part of the business at any time but especially so right now in these times of unprecedented financial hardship.

Following the lead set by our main sponsors, CDX Security, who have not only committed again for 2021 but have told us they won’t be seeking a refund for the ‘lost’ 2020 season, other companies have followed suit, including the Property Buying Company and Purpose Business and Marketing.

Based in Warrington, CDX Security confirmed in August that they would be our main backers again next year. This outstanding family business, a national leader in the supply of security services across the UK, supported Roughyeds with various sponsorships in 2019 and then became the club’s main sponsor this year.

Property Buying Company and Purpose Business and Marketing will also be right behind us again as we strive to make our mark in the Betfred Championship with a new-look squad in 2021.

One of the UK’s leading property buying companies, PBC is owned and managed by property professionals with more than 50 years of combined experience in England and Wales.

David Slater, chief operating officer, said:

“We are very happy to continue our sponsorship of Oldham RLFC. In the current state of the world it’s good for businesses to stick together in their support of clubs which are a massive part of their local communities.

“We hope to see Oldham continuing to progress, moving forward on the field and growing the business. We are proud to support the club.”

The managing director of Purpose Business and Marketing, Julie Collins, needs no introduction to Oldham fans. She’s not only a supporter herself, but she serves on the volunteer management team that beavers away in the background to assist the club’s owner, chairman and chief executive Chris Hamilton.

Purpose Marketing — slogan, ‘Your purpose is our passion’ — is a marketing agency offering the skills, expertise and technologyto grow, develop and market a client’s business.

In this case the sponsorship is offered on two levels — 1, financial and 2, practical, in terms of marketing support, programme production and assistance in other directions.

Said Julie:

“It’s been a difficult year for everybody and a challenge for all businesses but there was never any question of us asking for a 2020 refund.

“I’m really excited about the squad that’s being built and the direction in which the club is moving. Chris deserves a massive compliment for keeping the club going and both he and Matt should be applauded for the squad they’re building.

“We are not a large business, but I love rugby league and I love the Oldham club and Purpose Business and Marketing is proud and happy to continue our support.

“Whatever the company does for the club it doesn’t cost the club a penny.”

Said chairman Chris Hamilton:

“The club is extremely grateful to both companies, whose great support makes a real difference, especially during this current Covid crisis. We really appreciate the support of sponsors and season-ticket holders in these times of unprecedented hardship.”

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.
