Take part in the Big Slimming World Clothes Throw! As part of Slimming World’s ongoing partnerships with Cancer Research UK, we’re inviting our members to bag up any clothes that they’ve slimmed out of, and bring them along to their group. We’ll then donate them to the local Cancer Research UK shop, to help raise much-needed funds for this amazing charity.
If you’re not a Slimming World member, now is an exciting time to join and take the opportunity to declutter and donate to support this charity’s lifesaving work.
£17 million raised for Cancer Research UK – so far!
Since becoming an official Cancer Research UK partner in 2013, our fantastic community of Slimming World members, Consultants and head office staff has raised more than £17 million. During our last Clothes Throw event in 2019, more than £3 million was raised – and we’re so excited to see what we can take our total to this year!
A shared goal
At Slimming World, we’re committed to helping our members make healthier choices, which in turn can help to reduce the risk of cancer – a goal shared by our charity partner, Cancer Research UK. Through this important partnership, we’re helping to fund research into cancers related to obesity, to build on our understanding of the links between weight and cancer – and ultimately to help save lives. So, let’s get filling those Big Clothes Throw bags!
The Big Slimming World Clothes Throw event will be running in Slimming World groups from 9th – 21st May – and groups will be buzzing with members sharing their inspiring stories and celebrating their weight loss success. If you’re on your slimming journey, this is the perfect opportunity to say goodbye to those too-big clothes forever! It really is a brilliant feeling to let go of the old, freeing up space in your wardrobe for new clothes that you love. All you need to do is:
- pick up a purple Clothes Throw bag from your local Slimming World group
- have a good rummage for clothes, shoes and accessories that you no longer want
- fill up your bag (or bags!) and return it to group between 9th and 21st May
Your Consultant will arrange for the bags to be donated, where the clothes will be sorted and sold to raise those much-needed funds.
There’s still time to join Slimming World and get involved in the Clothes Throw fun! Find details of your nearest group here.
