Slimmers shunned these tasty treats and donated them elderly care home residents.

Slimming World groups from Heybridge, Wickham Bishops and Little Baddow collected unopened treats given to them over Christmas and recently donated them to Brewster House in Oak Road, Heybridge.

Emma Chapman (pictured), who runs the groups, said: ”It was a win win situation as far as we were concerned.

“Our members were encouraged to deposit all the temptations into a box so they could benefit others.”
