STAFF at Dudley Building Society have taken part in an eight-hour cycling challenge to raise money to help premature and sick babies.

The cycling marathon saw society staff ride a total of 582.2km and raise more than £1,400 – with donations still pouring in – to provide 24/7 care at Walsall Manor Hospital’s neonatal unit.

Jeremy Wood, chief executive of Dudley Building Society, said: “We are lucky to have a team of people at the society that are so committed to giving back to charities and the community.

“As the neonatal unit have made a real impact on the lives of some staff at Dudley Building Society, being able to give back to the unit made this cycle challenge extra special.

“We are all aware that the neonatal unit has done and continues to do a fantastic job in both supporting and looking after the local community.”
