DUDLEY Council footballers scored a big win for good causes at a tournament for the mayor's charities.
Councillors and officers from the authority's Team DB raised £800 at the event on Thursday August 15 at Redhill School in Stourbridge.
The cash will be shared out between the mayor's chosen charities Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and White House Cancer Support in Dudley.
Councillor Alan Finch, Mayor of Dudley, said: “I am delighted that so many councillors and council staff gave up their time to raise money for these very worthwhile causes. Thank you to everyone who made it such a huge success.
“The money we raise through the Team DB initiative will help these charities continue to support people in most need through their work.”
Team DB will be putting their sporting skills to the test again in the annual charity cricket match on August 29 at Stourbridge Cricket Club.
Councillors will again take on a team of council staff, with all money raised going towards the Mayor’s chosen charities.
