SLIMMERS have been shedding stones and raising money for charity.

Members of Slimming World in Mirfield took part in the organisation’s Let’s Beat Obesity community campaign.

They have been taking part in sponsored walks which have helped them to raise money for charity and assisted them in their continued weight loss.

Over the 12 weeks of the campaign, slimmers in Mirfield raised £226 for Battyeford Cubs and the dementia support group at St Andrew’s Church.

They also lost a combined total of 128 stones between them.

Slimming World consultant Susan Welburn said: “It’s been about feeling healthier and giving to local causes.”
