Charities are celebrating a boost thanks to staff at Kirklees Council.
The council’s charity teams have raised just under £27,000.
The cash has been donated to several national and international charities.
To raise the funds staff members took part in discos, raffles, tea parties and even golf tournaments.
The amount they have managed to raise has exceeded everybody’s expectations.
The money has been donated over the past 14 years through a combined effort from the Streetscene and Housing and Highway Management charity teams.
The Streetscene and Housing charity team at Kirklees alone have raised almost £11,000 in the last four years.
Their fundraisers have included Christmas events, an Easter raffle, an Alice in Wonderland tea party and Halloween disco.
A large amount of the money raised has just been donated to the Mark Dobson Foundation.
The charity was set up in memory of the Crosland Hill man by his sons Alex, Ben and Josh to raise money for grassroots football in Huddersfield.
Mr Dobson had been involved with local football at Netherton and Berry Brow for many years and was a long-serving manager at Streetscene.
Other good causes to receive support include the Pakistan Flood Relief fund and Comic Relief's Red Nose Day.
Karen North, senior technical officer from the Streetscene and Housing department said: “We have had a huge amount of fun organising our fundraising events.
“The four previous mayors have chosen some fantastic charities. We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us. Every donation and effort has been appreciated and we would not have been able to raise that amount of money without everyone’s support.”
