Slimmers in Devizes have raised £260 for our Give Us A Chance appeal.

Members of Slimming World groups in the town have lost more than 75 stone between them over the past six weeks.

Every year the organisation holds a Slim for Good campaign and this year the Devizes members chose to help Devizes Opportunity Centre.

Member Mel Maslen joined the group, which meets at The Crown Centre, after being referred by her GP and she alone lost 5st 10.5lbs.

She said: “I have now got so much more energy. It has transformed my life.”

Another member saw her cholesterol level drop from 8.5 to 4.4.

Organiser Kim Heath said: “We believe we have raised about £260 through the sponsored slim and a raffle.The Crown Centre group raffled a body wrap donated by Aurora Beauty and the Nursteed Centre group held a raffle evening with loads of donated prizes.”
