Slimming World groups in Halton took part in a sponsored walk to raise almost £2,000 for Halton Haven.

Members of the Buffs Widnes group, joined members of The Heath and Murdishaw Runcorn groups and walked across Halton and raised £1890.80.

Consultants Carli, Emma, Ruth, Joanne and Lisa organised the walk to encourage their members to get some exercise and then come up with the idea to raise some money for the local charity while they were doing it.

Runcorn and Widnes World:

The consults said “they were overwhelmed with the response from their members, and everyone really enjoyed it.

"We battled the steaming temperatures and everyone completed the course” “The ever growing obesity rate is a real concern so we want to encourage healthy eating and exercise, to start to tackle the problem”

The walk started at The Buffs club in Widnes were Carli runs her groups on a Tuesday and Saturday. Everyone then walked to The Heath in Runcorn were Emma, Joanne and Lisa run their groups.

They stopped for some refreshments before heading off to the Home of Ruth’s groups at Murdishaw Community centre which are there on a Tuesday and Saturday.

The walkers ended their walk at The Queen Of Hearts pub for some much needed refreshments.

If anyone would like to donate this can be done direct to Halton Haven.
