Burnham slimmers present a weighty donation to cancer charity

Members of a slimming club in Burnham-On-Sea have this week presented a weighty donation to a local cancer charity.

Members of the Slimming World group who meet each Thursday at Burnham Infants School have collected two thousand five penny pieces over the course of a year, amounting to £100.

The group's co-ordinator, Hayley Moore, told "Our group's members have been dropping five pence pieces in several collecting pots for almost a year now and are delighted to hand over the sum to Somerset Breakthrough Breast Cancer."

She added: "One of our members was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year, so this is a special cause for us."

The charity's Christine Piper is pictured receiving the donation from the group's co-ordinator, Hayley Moore, and members on Thursday evening
