CDX comes up trumps again

CDX Security, our chief sponsors, were awarded ‘The most trusted Security Provider in England’ by the SME News Business Awards 2020.

Nearer to home, they’ve helped us out again in these difficult times by sponsoring our away-game travel during the 2021 Betfred Championship season, which starts with the visit of derby rivals Swinton Lions to Bower Fold on Good Friday, April 2, kick-off 5.15pm for live streaming on Our League.

Among our 11 away trips during the regular Championship season will be those to London Broncos, Newcastle Thunder, Toulouse Olympique and Whitehaven so we’ve a fair bit of travelling to do and CDX Security will be backing us over every mile.

Said managing director John Roddy:

“Given the current circumstances especially, we fully appreciate how difficult it must be for clubs to manage without fans through the turnstiles, so I met Chris (Hamilton) the other day to see if there was anything extra we could do to help.

“As a result of that meeting, we will be sponsoring the coach for away travel in the hope that it will help.”

On behalf of the club, chairman Chris Hamilton said:

“CDX have again come up trumps. It goes without saying that my personal thanks and those of Oldham RLFC go to CDX Security and to John and his management team.

“They’re with us in spirit all the time, but this year especially so when we are burning up the miles on the motorways.”

The company continues to expand across the country from its base and head office in Warrington.

Said John:

“We’ve always done a lot of work in the South of England, but we’ve got so much business down there now that we’ve had to open an office and an operational base in London.”

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.
