Making their annual visit to a Cornish Pirates home game, members of Bolingey Barbarians collected the excellent sum of £710-91 when the Pirates recently played Hartpury RFC in the Greene King IPA Championship.
As ever, their Chairman, Roger Mead, was immediately keen to point out that this was only possible thanks to the generous response shown by supporters and, of course, the Cornish Pirates. Roger also confirmed that the amount raised will help with their purchase of a special room hoist for the Curnow School in Redruth.
Celebrating their 25th Anniversary season, Bolingey Barbarians have recently passed the milestone of having donated £100,000 to 57 worthy charitable causes in Cornwall, which is a fantastic achievement and one that has made a real difference to thousands of young lives.
Roger has also commented:
“All of this would not be possible without the generosity of the players and supporters of the Barbarians and, of course, the great rugby family of Cornwall, who always respond.”
Roger once more added:
“As a group we are forever grateful for the ongoing support by the Cornish Pirates, to whom we also wish every success in their quest to reach the highest level of rugby.”
As part of their Anniversary celebrations, Bolingey Barbarians have been honoured with the presentation of a plaque commemorating both their 25 years of rugby and their fundraising for the less fortunate children in Cornwall. The presentation was made by Mr. Peter James, President of the Cornwall RFU, and the CRFU management committee. The Barbarians are also very proud that one of their founder members, Mr. John Sumnall, has been made President elect of the CRFU.
