The offer was taken up and a long partnership between the charity and Gloucester Rugby was started.
Chris Penny, Pied Piper volunteer, took on the role of organising the turnstile operators under the watchful eye of Mark and supported by Senior Stewards, Ivo DeRozarieux, Paul Dewick and Chris Locke.
This close working relationship with the Charity has resulted in players regularly visiting the new Children's Centre at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, where a room has been named after the Club, displaying pictures of players and rugby images.
The work undertaken by Pied Piper volunteers and the annual match day collection has now raised just over £100,000 for the charity, which continues to improve the lives of local sick children.
The Appeal reaches out to help sick children across Gloucestershire in many different ways and the Club will continue to support this very worthwhile local charity.
