The annual SRG Beach Sevens tournament at Peterborough Rugby Club ended with a charity game between two teams of veteran players - most of them local - and they helped swell the coffers of the Matt Hampson Foundation by £1,460.

The Matt Hampson Foundation helps inspire and support young people seriously injured in sport.

The SRG Beach Sevens tournament, which took place earlier in the day, attracted sides from all over the country and was again very well supported.
