Cornish Pirates match-day collection for The Chestnut Appeal

Cornish Pirates’ chosen charity for the season, The Chestnut Appeal, raised an excellent £835 at a match-day collection at the recent Championship home match against Bristol.

Campaign spokesman David Squires said: “We had a great day at the Pirates, with all of our collectors – including players Paul Andrew, Brett Beukeboom, and Nicolas Coronel – receiving such a friendly and generous response from the supporters of both teams.

The amount collected was a fantastic sum, snd thanks to everyone.” The Chestnut Appeal has also recently received a £250 donation from Three S Films, Penzance, which followed their associated work with the Pirates.
