Staff at a New Milton accountancy firm are marking its centenary by shedding 100 pounds of weight in 100 days.
Fourteen team members at Princecroft Willis (PcW) are taking part in the charity slimming challenge
The first weigh-in revealed a collective weight of 2,508 lbs. It's hoped to have this figure down to 2,408 lbs by the end of the 100 days in April.
Proceeds are being donated to Oakhaven Hospice at Lymington.
PcW Partner Anne-Marie Gates said: "The slimming challenge is a great way of celebrating the firm's centenary by reducing our waistbands and raising money for a good cause at the same time.
"Everyone has really entered into the spirit of things and we're all looking forward to being lighter and healthier by the end of the 100 days."
Mark Johns, Managing Partner, said Princecroft Willis was planning a number of charity initiatives to celebrate the firm's 100th anniversary.
"Raising, hopefully, hundreds of pounds in cash for a worthy cause by shedding at least one hundred pounds in weight is an excellent start to our centenary celebrations," he added.
Princecroft Willis has offices in Poole and New Milton and offers a full range of accounting services from audit to taxation.
