392lbs lost but £500 gained for Pilgrims Hospices
Members from Slimming World, Wye, lost an amazing 392lbs (28 stone) in six weeks during March and April, raising an impressive £500 in sponsorship and donations for Pilgrims Hospices.
Wendy Riley, Slimming World consultant, explained: “Several of our members have personal reasons to be grateful to Pilgrims Hospices and suggested a sponsored slim would be a great way to focus their efforts.”
“The results were just stunning. 28 stone in six weeks took real effort and determination.”
Ros Sawyers, fundraising assistant, accepted the cheque saying: “What an absolutely amazing result. It is a real privilege when people use a personal challenge to support us.
“Pilgrims needs to raise more than £10 million a year to be able to continue to offer free care to the people of east Kent. “
