A FOOTBALL tournament has raised £1,400 for Housman Court’s Garden project, and Catshill Under 10 Football Club.

The event was held at South Bromsgrove High School on June 1.

A spokesman said it was a fun filled, competitive day.

"Everyone who came along enjoyed the day although I’m sure some of the players would have preferred some rain to the hot sunshine," they said

While the tournament was in full swing there was also a BBQ, refreshments, raffle and pick a square to win £100.

This was all organised by Lisa Dews – deputy manager of Housman Court and Gaz Evans – Catshill Under 10 Football Club manager.

The spokesman added: "They have worked so hard, as always, getting the teams together, co-ordinating the day and securing prizes etc. We would like to thank all of the local business’ and members of the community who kindly donated prizes including Broad Street DIY for the gas for the BBQ. Also many thanks to the participants and the team of volunteers without whom the event would not run smoothly."

The tournament raised £1,400 which will be split between to the two groups, in particular Housman Court for the garden project, which will enhance the garden experience for those who live at and visit Housman Court.
