Following their annual match day collection held when the Cornish Pirates recently played Jersey Reds at the Mennaye Field, it has since been confirmed that the magnificent sum of £694-35 was raised.


Speaking on behalf of Bolingey Barbarians their Chairman, Roger Mead BEM, said:


“Having enjoyed our day at the Pirates and the hospitably once again afforded our members, Bolingey Barbarians would like to thank the Cornish Pirates and their supporters in enabling us to raise such a figure. £694-35 is a truly amazing amount and will go to help so many children in Cornwall.”



More About Bolingey Barbarians


Bolingey Barbarians were formed in March 1993 following an ad-hoc match that had been played between the Bolingey Inn and Perranporth RFC to raise money for children’s charities.


As the match had been so successful it was agreed to form a club and register with Cornwall RFU. Players can only be invited to play for the club and are mainly selected from Cornish clubs.

All their fixtures are played at Perranporth RFC, except for ‘away day’ invitations, usually celebrating anniversary landmarks of Cornish clubs. For the first few seasons, fixtures were made with senior, junior, and veteran teams. With the advent of the league system player availability became more difficult and the club is now exclusively veteran.

Around five to six matches per season are played, and from these matches money is raised to donate to the less fortunate children in Cornwall. To date the incredible sum of over £130,000 has helped benefit more than 70 worthy causes.
