Ridgewell’s Slimming World members raised £60 for the Ridgewell Toddler and Baby Group to help it buy newer equipment.
In the two weeks leading up to Easter, members reached into their pockets for a raffle to raise money for the group, which like them uses the village hall as its meeting place.
The Ridgewell Slimming World group was launched in October 2014 and meets on Mondays at 7.30pm in Ridgewell Village Hall. From June 1 sessions will be held at 5.30pm and 7.30pm.

Vanessa said: “I am so proud of my members, not only are they truly focused on their weight loss but they also want to help others in the Ridgewell Village and surrounding community.”
The members, who attend the group every week, follow Slimming World’s Food Optimising eating plan created by the organisation’s team of expert nutritionists, which encourages them to fill up on satisfying foods such as pasta, rice, potatoes, lean meat and fish, pulses and fruit and veg.
