KINVER ROTARY CLUB'S SPONSORED SLIM UNDER 'WEIGH'


By Ian Maddock - Posted on 07 November 2014

Eleven brave souls stood on the scales as the Kinver Rotary Club sponsored slim started with a weigh-in on January 3rd. Three ladies and eight men, ranging in weight from 10 stones 11 lbs to 16 stones 2lbs and totalling 150 stones 8 lbs between them started their six week slim to raise funds for transport to get poorer children from Rohtak in India into education. The weigh-out will be on February 14th, so the slimmers will be able to enjoy a glass or two of bubbly with their Valentine!

International Committee chairman P.P. Ian Maddock is hopeful that the event can raise £1000 towards the target.

The photograph shows PP Ian Maddock aghast as the scales groan under his weight, with Foundation Committee chairman Arvind Sharma verifying the bad news.

Alongside the slim there is a 'guess the total weight lost in six weeks' competition. The person getting the nearest to the total weight lost by the eleven slimmers will win a bottle of champagne donated by Rotarian Tom Bryson - one of the slimmers.
