How Heavy is a Bee Hive?

Before Christmas we, as a group, realised that quite a few of us were either trying to or wanting to lose weight. Trying to come up with a way to support each other, and support a WI cause, we came up with the idea of a monthly weigh in at our meetings.

For reasons that I'm struggling to understand no one was keen for me as the blind girl to run this with my speaking scales.

The idea behind this was that every meeting those of us that had signed up would be weighed, and for those of us who lost weight a hearty congratulations. For those of us less successful we agreed to give a minimum 50p donation towards our adopt a Bee Hive fund.

This is possibly the first time that as a group we have started a charity fund which we hope to be empty at the end of the year! Well only supported through voluntary donations.
