Slimming World save pounds for rescuers

Over the past twelve months, the members of Ashburton and Buckfastleigh Slimming World have raised an amazing £300 for Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashbuton. Their members have devised a novel way of raising money for local causes by collecting the five pence pieces which they would normally have in change from their weekly membership fees. Team member Phil Martin said “Last year the team were called out to assist the police 29 times, providing their search skills in both rural and urban areas. To meet our operational costs we need to raise £17,000 a year and we are extremely grateful for this donation.”

Pleased to support Dartmoor Charities

Phil and fellow team member Ross Livings met some of their members at their regular Tuesday evening meeting at the Dartmoor Lodge Hotel to collect a cheque from consultant Emma Jeffreys. Emma said “We are very pleased to support local charities like Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton. This amount was donated by the amazing and inspirational members of Ashburton and Buckfastleigh Slimming World who have donated their 5p change over the year. That’s 6000 5ps.”
