Council chairman loses weight for charity

THE chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council is losing up to two stone to raise money for his chosen charity, The Royal British Legion.

Cllr Keith Walker is appealing for people to sponsor him for every half a stone he loses by the end of his term in office this May.

A healthy-eating plan, exercising on his cross-trainer at home and walking more will be the main ways he sets out to lose the weight.

He currently weighs nearly 15 stone.
