Members of Slimming World classes held at Balby Court held a fun race night, with the event raising nearly £700 for victims of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Manager Dawn-Lisa Appleyard, who helped organise the event and who dressed as a jockey for the race night, said: “We are more than a weight loss group, we're a community of members who care for others.
Wednesday and Thursday class members donated prizes for a raffle which raised £676.
She added: “We also regularly donate to St John's food bank amongst other good causes. And in May we'll be taking part in our Cancer Research UK clothes throw from 9 May to 21 May when we ask members to donate clothes they've slimmed out of to CRUK.
“Over the years Slimming World members have raised £17 million pounds and are on a mission to reach £20 million this year.”
