When the Cornish Pirates played Hartpury at the Mennaye Field just before Christmas, a second match day collection of the season took place in support of the Sport Cornwall Foundation.
A total of £609-20 was collected on the day, which provided a boost to the sum of £920 raised when the Cornish Pirates played Newcastle Falcons at home in October.
Collectors who helped raise £609.20 for the Sport Cornwall Foundation included Brian Venn
Following this recent collection, made by Cornish Pirates squad members and supporter Brian Venn, on behalf of the foundation Jack Richards commented:
Firstly, I would like to thank the generosity of the fans who not only turned out in very trying weather conditions to support the Pirates but who see the value of the Sport Cornwall Foundation. Working through the Stadium for Cornwall partners, it is of great help to provide outreach in the community which is very much needed.
Also thanks to the players and to Brian for their collection on the day for such a worthy cause.
This important Sport Cornwall Foundation, established by the Stadium for Cornwall Partners in 2019, has been designed with the aim to engage with the wider community by offering a unique sporting and learning experience, with the focus on programmes across the main pillars of participation, education and nutrition, health and wellbeing, inclusion, disability, and equality.
The programme reaches out and delivers fun, engaging, active and challenging sessions that generate lifelong interest in sport to schools and organisations throughout the whole of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
