The event, at the sports and social club, had crafts, a bouncy castle, face painting, glitter tattoos , tombola, chocolate raffle and refreshments.

Natalie Clark, whose son plays with the team, said: “It will be the second time a team from Leverington have been to Holland for the tournament.

“Last year the Dutch team came to us and we hosted them here with a mass sleep over for everyone in the village hall.

“There is also a trip to Butlin’s at the end of April so the more fund raising we can do to help the boys the better.”

Previously she has arranged a Halloween disco and a clairvoyant evening which brought in a total of £468 for the team.
