After the Christmas festivities a number of employees at the Extrusion factory decided to try to lose weight, and raise money for charity, they were joined by some people from Production engineering.
The contest which ran from January to the beginning of May became known as the Climatic Challenge and money was put in every week by the entrants with half of the total going to the winner, and half to the winners’ chosen charity. The percentage loss was used as the calculation to decide the winner.
The eventual winner of the Climatic weight loss challenge was Andy Shreeve who lost 17.7 of his body weight, in preparation for his next objective of giving up smoking, he is apparently also growing his fingernails for the same reason. Well done Andy, and he generously gave his personal share of the winnings to the runner ups’ charity.
Runner up was Eddie Eke who had been the early favourite, with a 13.76 loss.
£144 was raised for charity, Andy chose Quidenham hospice as his chosen charity and Eddies went to the RNLI.
On Thursday 27thMay a representative from the RNLI came to collect the donation, unfortunately the Quidenham representative could not attend.
A total of 179 lbs (nearly 13 stones) or 81.36 kilos in Euro weight was lost during the challenge.
Thanks to all those who took part and donated money to charity.
