STAFF at Slimming World in Somercotes have taken part in the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning to raise money for charity.

The 250 employees at the firm’s head office staged a coffee morning with a bring-and-buy of home-baked treats, which raised £82 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Sharon Coope, field support partner for Slimming World who organised the event, said: “It seems a contradiction that a slimming company would take part in a cake-eating charity event but that’s what’s great about Slimming World. Our Food Optimising eating plan lets you literally have your cake – and eat it because the plan is based on healthy eating.”
