‘Crack­ing’ fundraiser for chil­dren’s char­ity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

KIND-HEARTED slim­mers in the city have made a “egg-cel­lent” do­na­tion to a chil­dren’s char­ity through a “crack­ing” fundraiser.

Mem­bers of Slim­ming World’s Pas­ton and Gun­thorpe and Wood­ston groups held an Easter Egg amnesty in aid of Scotty’s Lit­tle Sol­diers.

The char­ity is ded­i­cated to sup­port­ing the chil­dren of men and women who are killed while serv­ing in the Bri­tish Armed Forces.

The amnesty al­lowed mem­bers to re­move the temp­ta­tion of eat­ing the choco­late treats but some slim­mers went fur­ther still de­cid­ing to raise money for the cause.

Ali­son Mor­rell, Slim­ming World con­sul­tant for the groups said: “The idea of them go­ing to char­ity went so well that some mem­bers even went out to buy ex­tra to give to them.”

Tanya Lewis, Vicky Green and Rachel Barker, from the Pas­ton and Gun­thorpe group, raised £35 by raf­fling Easter eggs at work while £65 was raised through an­other raf­fle among Slim­ming World mem­bers, thanks to a do­na­tion of eggs by Pas­ton and Gun­thorpe mem­ber Julie War­ren.

The eggs and cash were given to the char­ity at a re­cent pre­sen­ta­tion at Pas­ton and Gun­thorpe Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.
