Battlesteads Slimmers Raise Cash For Charity
Weight loss equals money gain for Tynedale Hospice as 75 slimmers raised £1,000 at a charity dinner held at Battlesteads Hotel and Restaurant in Wark on Tyne.
The slimmers are members of the Hexham Slimming World Group and they enjoyed an evening of delicious low calorie food – all made using Slimming World-inspired recipes – great company, a bumper raffle and the odd cheeky glass of wine!
The dinner was masterminded by Battlesteads owner Dee Slade and assistant general manager Katie Meyrick, who between them have lost five and a half stone by following the Slimming World programme. Dee worked closely with Sarah Hollows, who runs the Hexham Slimming World Group, to plan the menus and format for the evening – and Sarah gathered a fantastic set of raffle prizes.
As a result of Dee and Katie’s success and to help other slimmers maintain their weight loss, Battlesteads will soon be introducing starters, mains and desserts to its menus based on popular Slimming World recipes. They will also display the ‘syn’ values of each dish.
Sarah commented: “It was such a treat to be able to go to a lovely restaurant and be among friends whilst knowing that everything we chose to eat that night was allowable on our eating plan.
“Now that Slimming World dishes will be commonplace on the Battlesteads menu, I’m sure we’ll all be back for more!!”
