This year, Lee’s family organised more football teams to take part – a total of four – and got the support of 50 fete stalls, including crafts and children’s face painting.

There was also a big raffle, with 100 different prizes.

Lee said: "We raised £1,000 more than last year. The football tournament was really well supported. There were hundreds of people there."
