SLIMMERS swapped losing pounds to raising them when they took part in this year's Race for Life.

The Little Oakley Slimming World group joined thousands of other women at Colchester's annual Race for Life in Castle Park last week.

In total the group of 16 women raised more than £500 for the event's charity, Cancer Research UK.

About 2,500 women walked, jogged and ran the 5km course, many of them wearing pink.

Also taking part was Sue Heath, 51,  part with her future daughter-in-law Gemma Wiltshire, 26 in memory of a loved one.

She said: “My son Declan died in 2004, aged 10, from a form of bone cancer, Ewing's sarcoma.

"By the time it was diagnosed, it was terminal, and he died 18 months later.

"I’ve raised nearly £300, and Gemma has raised nearly £100.”
