It was all to help the family of six-year-old Dulcie O'Kelly, from Lawley who has an aggressive form of childhood cancer called neuroblastoma.

There are treatment options in the UK but they are raising as much as they can in case that fails and she needs to have expensive treatment in the USA.

For the record, the tournament winners were: Proud Fallopians (gold); Ravens (silver) and Line of Shooty (bronze).
