Slimmers from weight loss groups in the area worked up a sweat to raise funds for a cancer charity.

Members of Slimming World’s Market Weighton, Pocklington and Holme-on-Spalding Moor groups took part in a Fight Fit combat fitness session, which was a one-hour martial arts to music workout, to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

The fundraiser was held in the sports hall at The Market Weighton School.

Maria Taylor, a consultant for weight loss organisation Slimming World, said: “It was a huge success. There were 44 members from the Market Weighton, Pocklington and Holme-on-Spalding Moor groups. We raised £155 and Mandy Kendrick, the instructor, was amazing.”

Mrs Taylor’s Market Weighton group took part in a Race for Life in Hull recently, which raised another £600 for Cancer Research UK.
