‘Cracking’ fundraiser for children’s charity
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.
