Slimming World groups in the town got behind the national Big Slimming World Clothes Throw, which invites members to bag up clothes which they no longer need after losing weight.

After a two-year break due to the pandemic, the drive ran from May 9 to 21 when members from all 16 groups in Hartlepool collected an incredible 252 bags for local Cancer Research UK charity shops.

Nicci Hardy, consultant for the Staincliffe Hotel Slimming World groups, said: “Our members are just amazing.
