Tesco on St Oswalds Road have helped raise £5,500 for Gloucester Rugby Community projects.
Last season, an arrangement with the store to use a section of their car park for match day parking was a great success with proceeds being donated to community educational projects.
Catherine Chattwood, store manager said:
"It always gives me great pleasure to work alongside a project that really helps the community and the local people of Gloucester.
"Gary Little, Community Manager at the club and I, have the same passion to make a difference to childrens' education, and I am delighted that we were able to raise so much money but also support the fans of Gloucester Rugby by providing easy accessible parking."
The Community Team at Gloucester Rugby aims to succeed in making a difference to the lives of many young people, inspiring and motivating them to enjoy a physically active and healthy lifestyle and transforming attitudes to learning through educational initiatives.
Gary Little, explained:
"The Community team at Gloucester have worked to develop the Engage Education programme which is based around the principles of rugby - strength, agility, enthusiasm, concentration, teamwork and thinking.
"We work with local schools and invite children along to take part in lessons held at Kingsholm. The aim of these sessions is to support young people with their learning, improve confidence and communication skills."
"All our projects are self-funding with any monies raised put back into delivery. The challenge is to secure sufficient funding to sustain and develop projects to meet the needs of our local community. We are extremely grateful to Tesco St Oswalds, Gloucester for supporting our community work."
The car park will be in operation again next season for every home 1st XV Gloucester Rugby game, commencing from Saturday 16th August for the pre-season friendly against Leeds Carnegie.
Entry to the car park is available from two hours before kick off, closing two hours after full time and costs £3 per car.
Speaking after the 55-0 win over CA Brive, Jonny May told GRTV that he's delighted that the team's hard work is starting to pay dividends but was equally happy for his friend and team mate, Charlie Sharples, on what was a big night for his fellow winger.
Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
Director of Rugby David Humphreys felt that his Gloucester side put themselves in a position to put Saracens under real pressure at Allianz Park on Saturday, praising his team's commitment and defence, while admitting that a lack of accuracy hit their chances in the second half.
Speaking to the local media at Allianz Park, Tom Savage was disappointed after the defeat at Saracens, but claimed Gloucester did plenty of good things and could've taken more than a losing bonus point.
