“Congratulations to runners up Ralph Ambrose, Dayton Lawson, Daniel Hayes and Bradley Evans who have all won signed copies of FIFA19.”
Kathy Thomas, CEO of Rochdale Connections Trust said: “I went along to see what the tournament consisted of and it was great to see so many young people participating.
“They were so skilled on the games consoles and we were thrilled to be selected as the recipient charity for the event.
“The monies raised have been allocated to the ground floor renovations we are having at our premises on Drake Street to make the environment much more user-friendly for local people who access our services.”
