Slimmers' £1k collection for cancer charity

Slimmers raised more than £1,000 for a leading cancer charity when they held a Slimming World Race for Life event in Berwick.

The Slimming World Race for Life in Berwick.

Slimming World groups from Berwick, Wooler and Eyemouth joined together for the event, raising the cash for Cancer Research UK.

The race was started by Cameron Tindle, an athlete who represents Scotland and Great Britain in the 200m at Under 20 level.

Every penny raised will go towards helping Cancer Research UK to fund pioneering, life-saving research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of all cancers.

One in three people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and research has shown that many types of cancer are more common in people who are overweight.
