A de-clutter of the wardrobe is good for the mind, but thanks to a group of ladies it has also proved to be good for the heart.

More than a dozen women from various Weight Watchers meetings in and around Saffron Walden have cleared out their cupboards and drawers of all their “too big” clothes and donated them to the British Heart Foundation (BHF).

Debbie Crawte, from Weight Watchers said: “Weight Watchers and the BHF have similar aims: to promote healthy lifestyles through healthy eating which, in turn, leads to a healthy heart. So it seemed obvious to donate our large, unwanted clothes to the charity.”

Jean Smith, manager of the BHF shop in King Street, thanked Weight Watchers for the donations, and said most of the items will be sold in Saffron Walden or other branches.

The BHF needs volunteers. For more details, pop in to the shop and speak to a member of staff.
