Industry heavyweight raises charity cash

INDUSTRY 'heavyweight' Nick Brown has triumphed in his slimming battle and in the process raised more than £10,000 for charity. Brown, who was recently appointed joint managing director of newly-launched leasing and fleet management company First Service Management, a subsidiary of United Dominions Trust, started his sponsored slim on March 3.

Joining Brown was another industry 'heavyweight', Brian Mahony, director of corporate business sales at Toyota, who raised £1,400 in shedding 28lbs and now weighs in at 12st 5lbs. And during the 11-week slimathon Brown, who is also vice-chairman of the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association, lost 42lbs having weighed in at 14st 11lbs.

Now he is appealing for everyone who sponsored him in aid of the fleet industry-adopted Wooden Spoon Society coupled with the John Jamieson School Project in Leeds to send him the cash promptly. With most people sponsoring Brown on a £1 for pound basis he reckons to have raised more than £10,000.
