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 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.
In case you missed it, there was plenty of activity on the official Gloucester Rugby website following the 55-0 European Rugby Challenge Cup win over CA Brive, including a number of post match video interviews.
The Cherry and Whites ran in seven tries in beating CA Brive 55-0 on Thursday night. An emphatic second half performance saw the hosts run in five tries to get the European campaign off to a flying start.
