The pair set themselves the challenge to cover 150 miles in August and they raised £1,090 for Cancer Research.

Stuart said: "Before I lost the weight a group event like this would have felt completely unachievable. I always joked I couldn’t run for a bus! I wouldn’t have had the confidence to try the distance let alone have lots of people seeing me in sportswear - I’m a new person now."

The Braybrook Slimming World group members collectively took part in the challenge and in total, they have raised £1,380 for the charity.

Marie-Louise Watkins, weight-loss consultant, said: "I am so proud of all of my members who set themselves the challenge of covering 50miles in August.

"At Slimming World, we help our members find enjoyable ways of getting more active and encourage them to increase their activity levels step-by-step, until it becomes part of their daily routine.

“I’m sure my members will inspire more people to get active and improve their health, while also helping raise awareness of the links between obesity and cancer. The money raised will go towards an amazing cause – one my members feel very passionate about – helping to support Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research.”
