A SLIMMING group in Knutsford are losing pounds to gain £s – all for a good cause.

St Vincent Church’s Slimming World group is encouraging existing and new members to sign up for their six-week weight loss challenge – Slim 4 Good.

All those taking part will be sponsored to lose weight and funds raised through the challenge will be donated to East Cheshire Hospice.

Slimming World Consultant Linsey said: “We know that being sponsored to lose weight is a powerful motivator, especially for a cause like this, which is close to our hearts. 

“We’re hoping that members who are already successfully losing weight in our Knutsford Saturday morning group will encourage their family and friends to take that first step towards a slimmer, healthier and fitter future.”

To launch the campaign, Linsey will be hosting an event at the Tatton Street church on this Saturday, February 22.

Anyone who wishes to sign up or find out more is welcome to come along.  The event kicks off at 9.30am.

Linsey added: “There’ll be plenty of healthy and delicious food on the day to show people how healthy eating can be deliciously satisfying and that with the right support, losing weight can be easy and enjoyable.

“We very much hope you’ll support us in our campaign to make Knutsford a healthier, happier place.”
