Dave Dunnett and his friends and colleagues from the civil engineering company, The John Henry Group, have raised £600 for CLIC Sargent by setting up a competitive group diet plan to help them lose their festive weight.

The diet plan included an initial entry fee, a weekly weigh-in charge and fines for not meeting the weekly personal target.

34 people signed up for the six week diet, each choosing a weekly weight loss target and how much the fine would be for failing to meet it.

At the end of the six weeks, the group had lost a total of 14.5 stone and raised a fantastic £1,200 which was divided equally between CLIC Sargent and MENCAP.

Well done to everyone involved for raising such a fantastic amount for children and young people with cancer and getting healthier at the same time.
