Slimmers keep Yorkshire Air Ambulance in air

Their loss was someone else’s gain when slimmers set out to raise money for charity.
A total of £733 was raised for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance when Slimming World group members in Yeadon set their minds to helping the organisation.
The groups, which are based at LA Fitness, collected £85 alone from the change given to members after they pay the weekly fee of £4.95. The main bulk of the fund-raising came from several raffles held in December.
Group leader Glynis Balshaw said the amount raised was “fantastic.”
“We chose the Air Ambulance as we wanted a local charity to give all our 5ps to, and then decided to try and raise a bit more,” she said.
