Bravehearts were asked to abseil more than 150 feet from the roof of the stadium onto the hallowed pitch.
The amazing sum has been raised for Marie Curie Cancer Care across the region.
Locally, the money will help to fund the Marie Curie hospice in Penarth and the Marie Curie home nursing service.
Jane Phillips, community fundraising manager, said: ``We are delighted with the result of the abseil. It was a fabulous day .
``The funds raised from the day will make a huge difference to the services we provide in Wales.''
