Slimmers can lose weight to help hospital

DIETERS likely to need motivation to stick to their New Year’s resolution are being challenged to see if they can lose weight for charity.

Scannappeal is offering help and support to groups of friends who pledge to lose weight together to raise funds for Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

The charity is looking for groups of four friends – who between them aim to lose 25lbs.

The target represents 1lb for each year the charity has existed.

Participants will get weekly dietary and fitness tips from WeightWatchers and discounted exercise sessions.
