England netball stars visited Cheam at the weekend to watch a tournament organised by charitable schoolgirls.

Friends Lauren Emanuel, Anna Perkins, Amy Crisp, Mollie Ring Hrubeshova, all in year nine at Nonsuch School and Natasha Rodriguez, in the same year at Greenacre School, organised a netball tournament for under 11s to raise money for the charity Wings of Hope, which raises money for children in India and Malawi.

The event was attended by England international Rachel Dunn, Surrey Storm players Hannah Reid and Katy Holland as well as Carshalton and Wallington MP Tom Brake and Bernard Sande, the High Commissioner for Malawi.

The group of girls, known collectively as the Young Volcanoes, arranged the tournament as part of a school project.

Lauren said: "We really want to help the children who are less fortunate than ourselves and empower the children in India and Africa through education."
