A total of £950 was raised at the event which will go towards building sports facilities and a sports worthy pitch at the site of The Fold Orphanage near Johannesburg, South Africa.
The event was well attended and those present were able to choose from 6 randomly selected horse races to place their bets as well as 5 races with a twist.
Those 5 races involved 8 of the Gloucester Rugby squad taking part in traditional sports-day races ranging from an egg and spoon race to a sack race.
The next event organised by the Community Department is a Quiz Night which takes place on Friday 7th June in the 1873 Suite. Teams of eight cost £40 and spaces are still available.
