Swinford’s Biggest Loser Challenge

You are welcome to share this on:

In aid of Our Lady’s Hospital Crumlin for Sick Children & Console.

Swinford’s biggest weight loss challenge between the 2 teams from the Gateway Hotel and The White House Bar is well and truly underway.

Swinford's Biggest Loser

The Gateway V The White!

Since Sunday August 31 when both teams squared off for the first time to record their opening weights, the battle of the bulges has been heating up by the week.

Both establishments are taking the challenge very seriously and local suppliers have noted a sharp increase in local sales of Coors Light, while reports of an emergency meeting in Diageo to discuss the fall in Guinness sales in Swinford are believed to be exaggerated.

Sponsorship cards are available around town and from any of the contestants and all proceeds will go to Our Lady’s Hospital Crumlin for Sick Children and Console. Two very worthy recipients.
