Fans of Leicester Tigers and Worcester Warriors joined forces to raise almost £2,000 for Heart Research UK.

Southco Manufacturing, located across the road from Sixways Stadium, opened their car park to fans of both teams on match day, with the £5 charge going to charity.

Sue, Jules, Tom and Rus from the company were manning the car park. Sue said: “We charged £5 for parking but many fans kindly gave us more. Both Tigers and Warriors have a really lovely bunch of supporters.”

Southco Manufacturing then matched the total raised by fans, giving a total of £1,727.

Our Chief Executive Barbara Harpham said: “We’re very grateful to fans of both Leicester Tigers and Worcester Warriors for their kind donations. With their help, we can carry on funding ground-breaking research and community projects to help the heart health of those in Leicester and Worcester.”
