A netball tournament in memory of a 16-year-old player netted more than a £1,000 for charity.

Women took part in a netball rally at Redbridge Sports and Leisure Centre, Forest Road, Barkingside, to remember Addie Brady who died from brain cancer in February.

Thirty teams entered the event and £1,292.60 was generated through entry cost and raffles.

The money will be donated to the Addie Brady Foundation which seeks to raise awareness and boost research into brain tumours.

Shona McCabe of Redbridge Sports and Leisure said: “It was a wonderful night and amazing to see such great support from the netball world for Michelle who is an inspiration and has created a fantastic foundation in honour of her beautiful daughter Addie.”

The winners of the cup tournament were Romford A, and the champions of the plate league were Romford D.
