North Somerset Slimming World groups came together last week to raise hundreds of pounds for Cancer Research UK.
People from around the area took part in the slimming club’s campaign Walk All Over Cancer by completing a sponsored walk along Weston’s seafront and raised £826.53 for the cancer charity.
The nationwide campaign saw people around the UK aim to complete 10,000 steps on the walk.
Members also aimed to raise awareness of how losing weight can reduce the risk of developing 13 different types of cancer.
Weight loss consultant Suzy Summerhayes said: “We had lovely weather conditions for our walk and in true Slimming World-style our members, their friends and families were out in force to support each other.
“They showed just what can be done when we come together – both in terms of achieving something amazing and raising money for a great cause too.”
