Win some, lose some
The participants in Slimming World at Trinity Methodist Church have been both losing and gaining pounds. By participating in the programme they have been losing weight; by fundraising throughout the year while slimming they have raised £170 for the North Northumberland Hospice in Alnwick.
Staff nurse Nina Burnett (holding cheque, left) from the hospice said, “We are a small hospice, so we’re really happy to receive this. We rely on members’ donations. We care for patients with life limiting illness and can care for patients in their own homes.”
The class has been run by Shirley Knox (bottom right) over the past eight and a half years, but Shirley is now stepping down and her place as consultant is to be taken up by Rachel Green (bottom centre).
