A Weight Watchers group in Andover is putting on a fun event in an effort to raise funds for Diabetes UK while helping people lose weight in the process. 

The ‘Swishing Event will take place on Saturday 29 March, 10:30am – 12:00pm at St Michael’s Church Hall, Colebrook Way, Andover. 

Swishing is a great way to support our members amazing weight loss and raise money for charity at the same time. Anyone in the community who is interested in swapping their clothes can come along. They just need to bring 1 item of clothing, shoes or accessories they no longer want. If they see anything they like someone else has brought along they pay a donation to Diabetes UK and take the item home with them.” said a Weight Watchers Spokesperson.

Losing weight can significantly decrease the risks of developing Type 2 diabetes so not only can participants donate to a good cause, they can also take part in the weight loss activities. So join the event and start yourself on the road to feeling great.
