A match day collection held in support of The Chestnut Appeal raised £555-38 when the Cornish Pirates played Ealing Trailfinders at home on the last day of their season.
The money collected will go towards the purchase of an MRI Scanner soon to be in place at the Royal Cornwall Hospital. The Scanner will make diagnosis of prostate cancer quicker and easier and will help in prostate cancer detection.
On behalf of The Chestnut Appeal, representative David Squires said:
Our sincere thanks are expressed to the Cornish Pirates players, staff and supporters. The amount collected is a wonderful sum, whilst once again it was a great day – and a fantastic match!
The Chestnut Appeal was the Cornish Pirates chosen charity for the season, during which a now final total of £1690-38 has been raised.
Community fundraising is vital for the The Chestnut Appeal.
More than 40,000 new cases of prostate cancer are diagnosed in the UK every year and yet less than 20% of men know where their prostate gland is or what it does, so a lot of work is clearly needed.
