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."
