Slim­mers get ready for race

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

A GROUP of slim­mers from Ash­ford hope to raise more than £1,000 for char­ity by don­ning their run­ning shoes. Some 20 mem­bers of Slim­ming World, from the Wil­low Cen­tre and Cryol Road groups, are tak­ing part in the Race for Life on June 24, to show their sup­port for Can­cer Re­search. One mem­ber has al­ready raised more than £200. Slim­ming World con­sul­tant, Ju­lia Males, is a keen run­ner af­ter los­ing two stone. She said: “It was the Race for Life that got me in­volved in run­ning when I took part in it two years ago. “It is fan­tas­tic that this year the race is be­ing held in Ash­ford as many more peo­ple can take part. “I would en­cour­age ev­ery wo­man to take part as the at­mos­phere is amaz­ing and it is for a fan­tas­tic cause. “You don’t need to be a run­ner to take part, you can walk the course if you pre­fer.” The Ash­ford race takes place from the Julie Rose Sta­dium on Sun­day, June 24.
