Slimmers from Shiremoor, Tynemouth and Whitley Bay put their best foot forward to help raise money for Cancer Research UK.

The 30 women and men, who are all members of Slimming World groups, were taking part in their own ‘Race at Your Place’ event, raising money for Slimming World’s fundraising arm SMILEs, which is supporting Cancer Research UK.

The group took part in a four-mile walk along the seafront from The Rendevous Café in Whitley Bay to the end of Tynemouth Pier.

Slimming World and Cancer Research UK have teamed up to help people live healthier lives and raise awareness of the links between being overweight and developing cancer.

The walk was part of a national event in all Slimming World groups in the UK, who held their own Race at Your Place event sometime between July 22 and August 10.
