Slimming World members have lost a joint 116lbs to raise money for Whipps Cross Hospital.

Ten people from the Leyton branch of the club were involved in a six week sponsored ‘slimmathon’.

Today, £150 was donated to the Margaret Centre which was chosen by the men and women at the All Saints Church in Melbourne Road.

Anyone interested in joining them can call Sarah Andrews on 07958 646 9842.

The Margaret Centre works with terminally ill patients, cancer patients and offers a Bereavement Service for people of all ages.
