Lose weight and raise cash for hospital’s great cause

LOSE those festive pounds and help cure bowel cancer.

That is the message from Stoke Mandeville Hospital’s Scannappeal, which is appealing to slimmers to get together in groups of up to four to collectively lose 25lbs for charity.

Staff from the hospital’s endoscopy department have already signed up for the slim.

Scannappeal will give fundraising advice and weekly dietary and fitness tips will be provided by WeightWatchers, as well as concessionary rates at your local Nexus leisure centre.

The slim starts on Monday 16 January for a total of eight weeks.
