Slimmers in Cranbrook have made a big donation to charity by giving their old clothes away.

Generous slimmers across Cranbrook raised more than £1,000 for charity by donating the clothes they’ve successfully slimmed out of and know they’ll no longer need.

Forty bags of clothes, shoes and accessories have been collected as part of the Big Slimming World Clothes Throw, held by the Slimming World groups.

The bags were donated to Cancer Research UK shops as part of the national fundraising drive run by the weight-loss group.

Slimming World also aims to raise awareness of how keeping a healthy weight can reduce the risk of developing some types of cancer.

Each of the filled bags is worth around £25 to the charity, and this year’s campaign is aiming to beat the £3.3million raised in 2017.

Kirsty Bailey, who runs the Cranbrook Slimming World groups, is delighted to have raised £1,125 money for charity.

Kirsty runs the groups in the Younghayes Centre, on Thursdays at 5.30pm or 7.30pm and Fridays at 9.30am. Call her on 07908 944562.
