Supporters of both Gloucester Rugby Club and Leicester Tigers teamed up with the Gloucestershire-based Willow Trust at the weekend to help raise more than £5,600 for the tsunami earthquake appeal.
More than 20 volunteers from the Gloucestershire-based Willow Trust charity were at Gloucester's 13,000 sell-out Zurich Premiership game against Leicester on Sunday.
The £5,692 raised will go towards the Citizen newspaper's UNICEF Children of South Asia Appeal.
The Club has also spoken to Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service who were collecting outside the ground on Sunday and they raised just over £4,000 from the Kingsholm area.
Liz Rowland is the Willow Trust's administrator and said: "We're delighted with the support we received from all of the supporters at the game. We felt that we wanted to help the disaster fund and everyone showed so much generosity."
Gloucester Rugby Club's managing director Ken Nottage added: "I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who contributed to the appeal. It is a superb amount to have raised and we hope the Citizen's appeal continues to grow."
Speaking after the game, Charlie Sharples described it as 'the win that has eluded us.' The winger stressed that Gloucester had stayed positive after the first couple of weeks of the Aviva Premiership season and the 26-13 victory over Sale was a result of that focus.
Gloucester Rugby picked up their first win of the new Aviva Premiership season on Friday night, easing to a 26-13 win on the road at Sale Sharks. Director of Rugby David Humphreys was full of praise for his players on the night.
Defence Coach Jonny Bell was on media duties ahead of the Aviva Premiership fixture at Sale Sharks on Friday evening, and spoke about where Gloucester find themselves in terms of their form at the moment as well as how he's viewing their defensive displays so far.
Callum Braley, who skippered Gloucester United to a 22-19 Aviva Premiership A League win over Saracens Storm on Monday evening, paid tribute to his forwards and the younger players in what he described as not the prettiest of wins.
Tickets for Saturday's Aviva Premiership game against Bath Rugby in both the Stowford Press Terrace and also The Shed are now in short supply, although a number of returns from the visitors have just gone back on sale.
A desperately disappointing afternoon for Gloucester who, despite dominating possession and territory, were guilty of failing to make the most of it against a resolute Newcastle defence before the visitors pounced to snatch the win in the second half.
