HOCKEY teams from across the region have netted success after raising £1,000 at a charity tournament.

The annual hockey tournament was hosted by commercial property agent Reeves and Partners at the Warwick Foundation School hockey pitches on Myton Road.

Five teams competed in the round-robin event including Warwick, Olton, Stratford, Old Warwickians and Coventry and North Warwickshire.

Old Warwickians were crowned winners of the event, while Coventry and North Warwickshire secured second place.

“The annual event, which is now in its fourth year, is a great opportunity for the teams to hone their pre-season skills at the same time as raising money for a great cause,” said Richard Pomfret, managing director of Reeves and Partners which has offices in Coventry and Leamington.

“A £20 voucher, donated by Warwick Sports Shop, was also awarded to Dom Bell from Coventry and North Warwickshire after he netting four goals.

“This year’s nominated charity is the Heart of England Community Foundation and we are delighted to have raised £1,000 which will help to benefit a worthy project in the community.”

Tina Costello, of the Heart of England Community Foundation, added: “We are really grateful to Reeves and Partners and the local hockey teams for helping to raise funds at their annual charity hockey tournament.

“The money will support amazing projects and groups that help to make a positive difference in the heart of the community.”
