On Tuesday eight sides made up of safer neighbourhood teams took part in a five a side soccer contest at Yo Football at Yarmouth's Harfreys Estate.
The winners of the competition were officers from Norwich's Bowthorpe area, who crushed their Thorpe Hamlet rivals 6-1 in the final.
The other teams involved in the Christian Aid Relief in Haiti event were from safer neighbourhood teams at Caister, Rural Flegg Villages, Cobholm, Southern Villages(Yarmouth), Acle and Gorleston.
