Slimmers in Frampton Cottrell, Winterbourne, Coalpit Heath and Bradley Stoke have been donating the clothes they’ve slimmed out of to support Cancer Research UK.

The groups have collected 568 bags of the clothes, shoes and accessories from members who have slimmed out of their old wardrobes and feel confident they’ll never need their ‘before’ clothes again. With each bag worth around £25 to the charity, slimmers in the area have raised around £14,200 for the charity.

The Big Slimming World Clothes Throw aims to increase awareness of how keeping a healthy weight helps reduce the risk of developing some types of cancer. The event has been supported by the singer and TV presenter, Peter Andre, who is a joint ambassador for the campaign and founder of his own Cancer Research UK fund after losing his brother to cancer.
