Posties diet for appeal
Three postal workers are aiming to lose weight and raise money for the Julian Wort Memorial Appeal.
Darren Coles, Debbie Jelly and Chris Arnold have joined Shapes Slimming Club at Frome Library and want to lose 2 stone each in six months.
It was Darren’s idea to do the sponsored slim for the appeal. He said: “Julian was a very good friend – we grew up together. I want to raise as much as I can, I do the town centre round and will be asking businesses to sponsor me.”
Before the trio did their first weigh-in they made the most of Pancake Day.
