Keen slimmers who have shed the pounds have been piling on cash pounds to help Cancer Research UK.

An amazing 400 bags of unwanted clothing has been donated to the Cancer Research UK shop in Abbeygate Street, Bury St Edmunds.

This is thanks to the Slimming World Clothes Throw which last year raised a massive £2.1 million nationally.

Members of six local classes will have, through their slimming endeavours, helped raise a massive £12,000.

Sarah Kesterton, shop manager said: “We had a break in at our shop recently and this has restored my faith in humanity to know people can be so nice.

“We also have a lovely lot of clothes for people to enjoy, especially if they are looking for larger sizes.”

Slimming World consultant, Alex Ridsdale, said: “The result has been incredible and it’s lovely for people to say goodby to the clothes they are shrinking out of.”
