Johnstone slimming companies show their support for good causes

MEMBERS of a Slimming World class in Renfrewshire were thanked for donating goods to three worthy causes this Christmas.

Johnstone-based weight loss consultant Jennifer McDade asked her Saturday morning class to donate children’s pajamas for an appeal hosted by Renfrewshire Provost Marshal Lorraine Cameron.

The group also decided to support Susan Temple, who works at the Johnstone Station ticket office and collects toiletries for Women’s Aid and the Turning Point health and social service charity.

In addition to providing more than 50 pairs of pajamas, the class donated around 60 bags of essential hygiene items, including toothpaste, shower gel and sanitary products.

Jennifer told The Gazette, “I think charities are struggling more than ever and it’s nice to be able to give back.

“I asked everyone in my Saturday morning class to bring a thing or two, as it makes it much easier to collect large donations.

“The community we have built in the Johnstone Saturday Morning Group made me so proud. First and foremost, we’re here to help people lose weight, but building a community that helps others is part of the Slimming World philosophy.

Earlier this month, Jennifer also managed to donate over £ 500 worth of toys to Families First Johnstone, which offers party packages to vulnerable local residents, after raffling her grandson’s unused bicycle.

Jennifer said: “I want to thank my Slimming World members, family and friends because they have all supported everything I have done.

The Gazette:

“I would also like to thank Provost Cameron and Susan for their continued hard work.”

Provost Cameron, who, along with Susan, recently visited the Saturday morning class in Johnstone’s Houstoun Square to collect their donations, said she was overwhelmed by support for her pajama appeal.

She added: “The members of Slimming World in Johnstone have been so generous with their donations and their kindness means that the kids in Renfrewshire who would have otherwise gone will be wearing new pajamas to welcome Santa Claus.

“Jen and her members are always so generous this time of year and I want to thank them for their efforts.”
