This year’s tournament took place online due to the Covid pandemic, but the players adapted well to the new technology and the amount raised was only £500 less than the previous year.

Organiser Liz Dean said: “I cannot express my gratitude to everyone who went to such great lengths to make sure that the competition was possible in this year of lockdown. It’s a wonderful tribute to the generosity of our loyal supporters.”
