An 80 for 80 weight loss challenge, a race night, a ‘shwapping’ clothes event, and climbing Everest in their dreams helped Soroptimist International of Harrogate and District to raise £3,324 for the British Heart Foundation.
The charity was the choice of outgoing President Gillian Trotter who said: The club worked very hard over the last year but it was such fun and we really enjoyed ourselves.
Sharon said: It is incredible to have raised over £3,000. Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer. Many people, or someone they know, have been affected by heart disease.
