Donington slimmers have raised in excess of £1600 for a leading cancer charity after holding a ‘Slimming World Does Race for Life’ event.

The members of the Donington Slimming World group held their own 5k event to raise money for Cancer Research UK, the organisation’s charity partner for 2014.

A total of 65 people took part, along with lots of spectators who supported the entrants across the finish line.

The Donington group’s race was part of a wider national event running across all Slimming World.

Emma Scarborough, who runs the group every week at the Ruby Hunt Centre, said her members ‘loved’ holding the event.
