Pound for Pound

the slimming groupDear Editor,

You might be interested in the NSPCC Slimathon 2008, which was organised by the Barkingside Slimming World Group, who meet at Dr Johnsons PH every Thursday morning between 9.30am - 11.00am.
In total, I lost 5lb and managed to raise over £500 from my friends, family and fellow councillors for a really worthwhile cause. The other Slimming World Group members in Barkingside have raised another £700, giving a grand total of £1,200.
For me, it's been a wonderful exercise in "cross-party" support right across the Council, including sponsorship from the Tory Leader Alan Weinberg, and the whole Labour Group, including our Leader Cllr Elaine Norman. Tory Cllr Anne Candy even emptied her purse for me, and Lib-Dem Cllr Felicity Banks cashed in all her 20p pieces!
