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."
Ahead of Friday evening's Aviva Premiership fixture away at London Welsh, Head Coach Laurie Fisher told the local media that he feels that Gloucester are making improvements each and every week but that there's still plenty of work to do.
Speaking to GRTV on Monday night, Pete Buxton was thrilled with the spirit shown by the Gloucester United squad as they overturned a twenty-one point deficit in the second half to overcome Bristol Rugby.
Scrum half Callum Braley was a try scorer in Gloucester United's 30-27 win over Bristol United in the Aviva Premiership A League on Monday evening and, after the game, paid tribute to his team mates for hanging in there and fighting back to get the win.
Skipper Billy Twelvetrees admitted that the Gloucester squad were disappointed and frustrated after losing at home to Exeter, regretting that Gloucester's own errors had given the Chiefs the upper hand.
Gloucester Rugby is rightly proud of the work that it does within the community and is delighted to confirm that it will be working with Gloucestershire Young Carers and Pied Piper as its two chosen charities this season.
