Raise money and revamp your wardrobe

May 29 2018

The big Slimming World Clothes Throw has returned and is proving the perfect time for people to start clearing out their wardrobes to make room for lots of lovely new-season clothes.

Slimmers across Bristol, from Bishopston to Westbury-on-Trym donated clothes they no longer fit into and, at the same time, raised money for Cancer Research UK.

So far more than 200 bags of clothes have been collected from members and even more will be taken to the Cancer Research charity shops during the week

Last year £3.3 million was raised by Slimming World members all over the country donating old clothes to Cancer Research UK. It’s hoped that at least £4 million can be raised this year, all helped through contributions from the North Bristol team. Each bag is worth around £25 to Cancer Research UK. And by filling out a Gift Aid form it can boost the value by 25% – to around £30 per bag!

It’s the perfect excuse for a wardrobe revamp!
