MORE than £1,500 was raised at a charity rugby match between St Just and Padstow.
The match – after which the two sides agreed to split the money raised between their chosen charities – was suggested by Padstow RFC's Ross Ford at St Just Feast recently.
And on Sunday the two clubs met at Tregeseal with guest players from around Cornwall.
In a keenly-contested match Padstow came out on top.
The clubhouse was packed afterwards with the crowd enjoying the songs of the Cape Singers accompanied by an accordion player from Padstow.
A pitchside collection, raffle and auction led organisers Mark Prowse, chairman of St Just, and Ross Ford to announce a total of £1,700 raised.
Padstow's £850 will go to Help For Heroes and St Just's share will go to Children's Hospice South West Little Harbour.
