A GROUP of slimmers are celebrating losing more than 34st between them, and donating food to the Trussell Trust.

Members of the Stratford Road Slimming World group took part in the national campaign Slim for Good, with the aim of helping people lose weight and improve their health while supporting a good local cause.

The 122 members voted to donate food to the Trussell Trust and collected just over 90kg of food during the six-week campaign - enough to feed three families for three days.

Jenny McNally, who runs the group and has lost 7st herself, said: “Supporting a worthwhile cause like the Trussell Trust has given everyone a special focus and real commitment to their weight-loss goals. I’m so proud of what the members in the group have achieved during the last six weeks.”
