The Roughyeds


Roughyeds Chocolate Bars on Sale

WE like to think we are innovative in our fund-raising ideas during these times of financial hardship and, in terms of commercial activity, we have come up with another Roughyeds’ ‘first’ — the sale of Cadbury’s chocolate bars that are personalised to the club.

You’ll remember those NHS and Joseph Platt shirts; now we’re selling 110g bars of chocolate in two designs; both carrying the club logo on the wrapper; one with the words ‘Oldham Rugby League Club’, the other with ‘No 1 Roughyeds Fan’.

We like to think fans will regard them as another way of helping the club in these times of unprecedented difficulty, but also see them as ideal little gifts for Mothers’ Day and Easter, birthdays or any other special occasions.

While Easter is traditionally associated with chocolate eggs, there are many thousands of people who may feel past the eggs stage but are still more than fond of chocolate!

We are selling these 110g Roughyeds bars (Cadbury’s) at £3.99 each plus £2 per bar for postage and packing, all profits for the club at a time when Roughyeds, like every other club, is fighting to keep its financial head above water without any income from gates.

The cash situation will become even more acute in the forthcoming weeks when we start playing again behind closed doors, so every £1 is vital and every little helps.

The chocolate bars are the latest additions to our ever-growing choice of Roughyeds merchandise etc, all of which is available to buy online. You can see it displayed by clicking on the ‘shop’ button.

Alternatively, anyone who does not have the internet or access to our online shopping can ring the club during normal office hours, Monday to Friday inclusive, on 07904 898 177 and pay by debit or credit card.

Our 2021 merchandise includes replica home and away shirts, both proving very popular already; bobble hats; scarves; baseball caps, sub-hoodies and face masks.

Some items are not dated, multi-seasonal, while we still have some items from 2020.

All are top-quality gear from our suppliers, 1895 Sports of Warrington, whose joint owner is none other than the popular Wolves’ powerful international prop Mike Cooper. Yes, we like to keep it in the family . . . the Rugby League family.

A huge thanks — again — for all your ongoing support for the Roughyeds . . . and please don’t forget our chocolate when you’re thinking of Mothers’ Day and then Easter.

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.
