Slimmers from Kettering and Corby have been collecting advent calendars and selection boxes to be donated to food banks this Christmas.
Members of Slimmming World groups in Kettering and Corby have been busy collecting donations for food banks in the area, including advent calendars and selection boxes.
They will be giving the donations to local food banks with the hope that the festive treats can be given to any families with children who need to reply on the support of the food bank this Christmas.
Sonia Mathieson, who runs Slimming World sessions in Corby, said: “During November, Slimming World groups in Corby and Kettering have been collecting advent calendars and selection boxes to donate to local food banks.
“We know that if families are struggling to buy food and essentials, treats for children will be at the bottom of a very long list.
“We will be collecting this week also, and we will be accepting donations from members and non-members alike.”
If anyone would like to donate, they can find their local group on www.slimmingworld.co.uk or call Sonia on 01536 508980.
