Nearly 30 fundraisers got together to take part in a Race for Life at the weekend.

The Slimming World members ran roughly 5km through Morden, and have raised around £600 so far.

The money will be donated to the charity Cancer Research UK.

The 27 women were also joined by 13 children on the fundraiser, which took place from 11:30am to around 12:15pm on Saturday, August 2.

Linda Jordan-Hayes, weight loss consultant with Slimming World, said: “I lost my mum to cancer so this is an important cause for me.

“As well as raising money it also got our members running, so there was double the benefits.”

Slimming World is based at Morden Park Baptist Church, Lower Morden Lane, Lower Morden, SM4 4SP
