The team's committee decided they wanted to give back to the local community by bringing their members together for a family fun tournament after lockdown and raise as much money as they could for a worthwhile cause.

They hosted a raffle with prizes donated by members which included two tickets The View from The Shard and a dog groom voucher from The Spa Pamper and Groom in Dartford amongst others.

Whiteoak also held a cake sale alongside to raise more funds for their cause.
