A match day collection held at the Mennaye Field has raised just over £300 in support of Whale & Dolphin Conservation, which is the leading charity dedicated to the protection of whales and dolphins.
The collection, which took place when the Cornish Pirates recently played Hartpury RFC, was dedicated to the memory of Deborah Rogers of Porthgwarra who sadly passed away a couple of months ago. Volunteers and relatives of Deborah’s family were present to collect in her memory.
A long-time supporter of Whale & Dolphin Conservation, some of Deborah’s happiest hours were spent watching dolphins along this stretch of coast where she and her family have lived for many years. She had a strong connection with the Pirates – her family longstanding supporters and where her grandson Jago Rogers is proud to play for the Pirates Juniors.
Thanking the Cornish Pirates for enabling the collection to be held, WDC’s Events Manager, Stine Bang, has commented:
The opportunity given our volunteers to collect was greatly appreciated. They also had a great time and really enjoyed the day.
We were warmly welcomed and to have raised just over £300, including contributions from generous supporters and from Dicky Evans and club captain Brett Beukeboom, was so very worthy.
