Published on 31st July 2012
Sandwell Council’s revenues and benefits team have raised £370 for Cancer Research.
Back-office staff at the Council House in Oldbury collected donations, held a raffle and wore fancy dress to support the charity.
Revenues and Benefits Services Manager Ian Hubball said: "Many of us working in revenues and benefits have colleagues, friends and relatives who have been diagnosed with cancer, so it is a cause that is close to our hearts.
"We recently lost a colleague to cancer and that gave us the push to raise money for Cancer Research. In the end we collected around £370."
Sandwell Council's cabinet member for strategic resources Cllr Steve Eling said: "It's good to see staff raising money for such a good cause."
