Weight Watchers members in Eye have managed to raise £500 for charity after a sponsored walk through the town.

The group, made up of all ages, walked distances of between one and five miles through the town depending on their level of mobility.

Leader Sandra McGlinn, who took part herself, said: “The group has developed a new love of activity and the challenge was a great way to celebrate that.”

The group, who meet every Thursday morning in Eye town hall, also raised a further £200 through a clothes sale and baking day.

All proceeds will go Diabetes UK, which campaigns for those affected by or at risk of diabetes.
