Lottery income 'vital' as lockdown restrictions ease

Date published: 09 April 2021

As lockdown restrictions start to ease, Oldham RL Club has launched a campaign to promote its Club Cash lottery in a bid to get income back to pre-Covid levels.

Lottery income has dipped by 50 per cent and Roughyeds need it back - urgently.

"Finances have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months and its important we get the lottery back to where it used to be," said chairman Chris Hamilton.

There are plans for door-to-door collections to start again as soon as its considered safe and within all government and RFL guidelines.

In the meantime, fans can join for as little as £1 a week, or start up again, by ringing the club on 07904 898177 or by email to:

The club says there are "great opportunities" provided by its lottery partnership with the not-for-profit National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA).

A detailed statement is posted on the club website.
