A CHARITY five-a-side football tournament in memory of Rubery girl Nicola Hurlbutt raised £1,800 for Meningitis Research Foundation.
The event, which took place last monthy, was won by Rubery Legion FC after the final with Callowbrook Allstars went to penalties.
A total of 16 teams took part and more than 120 people went along on the day.
The evening event at Rubery Social Club, which featured live music, a DJ, a raffle, a sweet stall from Delightfully Sweet, and a host of games, boosted the coffers even further.
Football mad West Brom fan Nicola, who attended Waseley Hills High School, passed away from meningitis and the day the event was held would have been Nicola's 30th birthday.
Kelly Hurlbutt, Nicola's sister, went into labour two weeks early and gave birth to a baby girl on the day. Millie weighted 6lb 8ozs. It was also Kelly's partner Mark's birthday as well on that day.
Carlie Orme and Kelly Hurlbutt, who organised the day, said she wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who came along and supported what turned out to be a memorable event.
