In total, £721.40 was collected in buckets on the night, while a further £125 was donated online. All the funds (both bucket collections and online) are now with the Help for Heroes charity. The bucket collection money was counted after the game and deposited in Help for Heroes bank account on Wednesday. All money donated online is automatically passed on to the charity once a donation is made.
Our thanks to everyone who donated.
