Hitchin slimmers have raised more than £1,250 for charity by donating old clothes they no longer need.
Bags of clothes, shoes and more have been collected as part of the Big Slimming World Clothes Throw, held at Hitchin’s Slimming World groups this week.
The bags will be donated to Cancer Resarch UK shops in the area.
Marie Gill, who runs a Slimming World group at St Andrew’s School in Benslow Lane, said: “I knew our members were amazing but I didn’t expect such an incredible level of effort – wow!
“Collecting the bags up to take to local Cancer Research shops was a bit of a workout in itself but so worth it. To raise funds for a charity that does so much to beat cancer feels amazing.
“Hopefully this campaign and our efforts for charity will help inspire more people in our gorgeous town of Hitchin to improve their health and change their lives by losing weight too.”
