Members raise £1,000 for charity


A weight loss group in Belper has raised £1,000 for a heart charity after members entered a triathlon.

The Mind Your Weight class, which meets at Strutts Community Centre, decided to take part in the Derby Triathlon as a relay team and raise funds for the British Heart Foundation.

Spokesman Sally Race said: “As a part of inspiring our members to get active too, we decided that it would be a great challenge.

“We entered two teams and all completed the course and survived!

“Our goal was £500 so we are amazed and very pleased to have smashed our target for such a great cause.”
