For those who cannot make the tournament, but would like to contribute to this important cause, you can donate at  Below are details of how the money raised will be used. I'm fundraising to support the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. Heavy fighting, shelling and air strikes across Ukraine have had devastating consequences. Already, over two million people have fled their homes to escape intense conflict in Ukraine. Leaving behind loved ones, livelihoods and almost everything they own, they need shelter, food, and water. People are losing their homes and lives, essential services like water and healthcare have been hit and temperatures have dropped below zero. Please support my fundraiser to help reach those in urgent need in Ukraine and neighbouring countries. With your help we can support ActionAid and the DEC in scaling up their response and help families to stay warm and protect women and girls.  - £10 could provide essential hygiene supplies for 1person for one month - £50 could provide blankets for 4 families to keep them warm - £100 could provide emergency food for 2 families for one month
