Michael Mant weighs in for Calvert Trust Exmoor!

Retired local businessman and Calvert Trust Exmoor trustee Michael Mant has really 'weighed in' to support Calvert Trust Exmoor!


Since the 1st of February Michael has been on a sponsored slim, with people sponsoring him for every pound he loses, and all of the money going towards Calvert Trust Exmoor bursary funds, which are used to help people who need financial assistance to have a break at Calvert Trust Exmoor.


Before (1st February 2012):

Weigh in 1st February



Final Weigh in 30th April 2012


At today's final weigh in Michael had lost 26 pounds, and joked that it might have been 2 stone if he hadn't been to a friend's birthday dinner over the weekend!


Sponsorship is still coming in so we don't yet know exactly how much has been raised, but it is already over £1,000, and Michael is hoping to hit the £1,400 mark.


Tim Harris, CEO of Calvert Trust Exmoor (pictured with Michael in the 'before' photo) said "we are absolutely delighted that Michael has been so successful with this sponsored slim, and we look forward to welcoming more disabled visitors to the centre as a result of his efforts."


If you would like to sponsor Michael it's not too late, please contact Calvert Trust Exmoor on 01598 763221 for more details.
