Jessica Hendrie-Liao, Chair of ISPA Council said, "The ISPA Charity Cup, in association with Rconnection, is a great way for the 'net industry to get together and support such deserving charities. The tournament has firmly established itself alongside The ISPAs - the UK Internet Industry Awards, as a key date in the Industry's diary.

"The great support for the event demonstrates the ongoing commitment of the Internet community to work together to promote accessibility to the 'net."

The teams managed to raise over 4,000 for charity through sponsorship.
