Slimmers in Market Weighton raised hundreds of pounds for Cancer Research UK by completing the Hull Race for Life.

Seven members of the Market Weighton Slimming World group entered the three-mile race and raised £740.

Maria Taylor, who runs the group, said: “It was an amazing achievement, not only for myself, as I suffer with a slipped disc, but my members ran it for the first time.

“One lady in the group has lost an amazing seven stone. This time last year she struggled to walk and now she has completed a Race for Life.

“I’m so pleased with the results that we are going to get more of our group to do the October one in York.”

The Market Weighton Slimming World group meets on Tuesdays at the town’s Community Centre in Station Road.
