Sunday's charity extend thanks to Blues fans for bumper collection
On Sunday collectors for small charity Hope and Homes for children raised a fantastic £726 thanks to the generosity of the Blues fans at the game.
The charity which raises money for orphanages in eastern Europe and Africa got closer to their £5,000 target with the sum collected at the game against Leinster.
Debs Thomas who collected on Sunday and also recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for the organisation expressed her gratitude to all the fans for the amount they gave;
"All of the donations made will go to the children who need it most. Hope and Homes for Children is a British charity focusing upon re-housing kids in Eastern Europe and Africa. These children are left vulnerable and orphaned because of the affects of war and disease.
"Having recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro our target of £5000 has nearly been met. Please do support us in our efforts to acknowledge this wonderful cause. Thanks again to all who have given so generously. "
