Countdown’s maths and literacy genius Rachel Riley was among the participants in a beach volleyball tournament last week which is set to raise �50,000 for charity.

Members of the Team GB beach volleyball team were also present, helping to smash the �40,000 target the charity had set for the tournament, which has been put on annually for the past four years.
