For the last couple of months the Hippo team have been organising a local football tournament in aid of Pendleside Hospice. The tournament was held over at Blackburn’s Soccerdome on Sunday 27th April and hosted 14 teams from around Lancashire.
As soon as 1pm came around all the teams had sized up their opposition and made their way to the pitch that would see their group take place.

Group A was won by Hippo Motor Group who won all 3 games without conceding a goal and in second place were the Lancashire Telegraph team and the first bonus spot went to the Media Village.
