  • The money was raised at a tournament in Benalmádena Pueblo

Walking Football Spain's May Festival raised a total of 250 euros to help fund new prostheses for Marbella youngster Sarah Almagro who lost her hands and feet as a result of sepsis.

The tournament, held at the sports complex in Benalmádena Pueblo, didn't get off to the best start with one team pulling out and the wind threatening to halt play, but it was clear that all seven teams were intent on proving they were top dogs.

In the over 60s group, Chorley ran out clear victors, winning all their games by 1-0. In group two, Los Diablos, featuring Sarah's uncle Enrique, came out on top.
