Cash rolls in at disco night.
STAFF at Coventry Building Society teamed up with a local roller disco company SK8 House to raise money for Birmingham Children's Hospital.
The disco, which was held at Coventry Sports Centre, raised a total of pounds 816 for the hospital.
Organiser Emma Brodie, who works at the society's customer service centre, said: "Some of us here at the Coventry have personal experience of the fantastic work of Birmingham Children's Hospital and we wanted to do something for them.
"We came up with the idea of holding a roller disco with the money raised being donated to the Hospital.
"It was a great night with a fantastic turnout of more than 100 members of staff and their families. We thought the roller disco would be quite a novel idea.
"We had a great laugh, even though most of us fell over a few times, we didn't mind the bruises as it was all for a good cause."
The roller skate equipment was donated free of charge by SK8 House of Coventry.
Novel idea: Heath Stone, director of SK8 House, and Emma Brodie, community officer at Coventry Building Society, hand over a cheque to Gemma Broll, support worker in the Children's Hospital outpatients department.
