Oldham RLFC 'very happy' with NHS tee-shirt sales
Date published: 30 June 2020
Half the profits from the shirt sales will be donated to local NHS charities
In only nine days, the special tee-shirt commissioned by Oldham Rugby League Club in appreciation of the fantastic front-line work done by the NHS was ordered by 118 people from all over the country.
Priced at £29, and with half the profit on sales going to NHS charities, tee-shirts will be heading out along the full length of the M62 corridor from Liverpool to Hull; from Kent in the south to Spennymoor and to Sunderland in the north; and to many other counties in between such as Surrey, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Wiltshire.
"Given the short time available and the 'spread' across the UK, we are very happy indeed at the public response," said the club chairman Chris Hamilton.
"We would like to thank everyone who has taken part and who will be wearing shirts in rainbow colours that reflect the wonderful work of the NHS at all times but especially during the Covid-19 pandemic."
Deadline for the receipt of orders was midnight on Sunday, June 28. A cheque presentation will be made to the NHS soon.
