In 2003, Pied Piper volunteers started to man the turnstiles at Kingsholm for Gloucester Rugby home matches. Both parties are delighted to confirm that the arrangement will continue in 2009-10.
Over 30 volunteers help to operate the turnstiles, a role which includes checking the validity of every match ticket before entry is allowed into the ground.
The Pied Piper Appeal raises money in order to make a difference for sick children in the County by providing child friendly equipment to aid their recovery.
They do this through their various fundraising activities as well as a regular annual contribution from Gloucester Rugby.
To date over the past six years, in association with Gloucester Rugby, £73,454 has been raised for Pied Piper which excludes income for the 2008-9 season which is expected to be in the region of £10,000.
Gloucester travel to Oyonnax for the second round of the European Rugby Challenge Cup on Saturday evening, and Director of Rugby David Humphreys is expecting a big test from the French side, feeling that their league position doesn't reflect their recent performances.
Speaking exclusively to Gloucester Rugby TV, Matt Kvesic explained that his decision to extend his contract at Kingsholm was a simple one and that he was hugely excited for the future in Cherry and White.
Speaking after the 55-0 win over CA Brive, Jonny May told GRTV that he's delighted that the team's hard work is starting to pay dividends but was equally happy for his friend and team mate, Charlie Sharples, on what was a big night for his fellow winger.
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.
