Despite postponement of last Saturday’s Cornish Pirates versus Hartpury RFC match, annual visitors Bolingey Barbarians still managed to go ahead with their granted collection, supporters in the bars donating an incredible sum of £589-00.
On behalf of Bolingey Barbarians, Roger Mead commented:
It was a shame the match could not go ahead, but we still made a day of it and had an enjoyable time at the club, where we were once again well supported by generous members of rugby’s remarkable family. Thanks to every one of them, and to the Pirates!
Made up of former rugby players, Bolingey Barbarians have during their 25-year existence performed such admirable work about the county. Indeed, they have raised a sum in the region of £100,000 for so many good causes in Cornwall.
Following the passing this season of stalwart supporter Ron Rogers, his brother Dave kindly called by the club office recently to deliver a small suitcase of archive material.
The support given by the Cornish Pirates to members of the community over the years has been outstanding.
