Yale College pair shed the pounds for kidney charity - Evening Leader

Yale College pair shed the pounds for kidney charity - Evening LeaderNot content with losing weight for their chosen charity, the dynamic duo are also organising Wrexham's first-ever Walk for Life on Sunday, March 29.

Sponsored by Specsavers which will supply free t-shirts, the event begins at 10.30am from Wrexham FC's Racecourse ground in Mold Road and follows a circular route through the town centre.

Rachael said: "We're hoping to attract between 500 and 1,000 people. In fact, the more the merrier. People interested in taking part can contact me on 07515 190342 , or bring a donation with them on the day.

"When I started raising money for the charity it opened my eyes to how many people there are out there with kidney problems."

She added: "I particularly wanted to help the Kidney Wales Foundation because Nia has done so much to help Stuart and I with our weight loss programme.

"It has been going quite well up to now but I must admit it has been hard for me. I have a real battle with food and have had to change my lifestyle completely."
