Slimming down swells the coffers

Shedding pounds left stalwart slimmers at BPH Fat Fighters club with £200 to donate to a good cause at the end of 2017.

“We were delighted we had so much to give and we all feel a lot better for being lighter and fitter,” says BPH Team Manager, Phil Smith.

The money was donated to Guide Dogs for the Blind and local charity Always A Chance, which supports families with loved ones who have suffered violence while abroad.

Generous colleagues also organised a collection of Christmas goodies for vulnerable local people and local charity Animals In Need benefitted from donations of pet supplies.

Around 150 BPH people took part in the popular annual Christmas shopping trip and places are expected to be snapped up on the next London coach trip in the spring.
