JUST days into their Operation Transformation programme and already the Kiltimagh OT team are breaking records.

Last year Kiltimagh OT were the country's biggest losers, shedding over a ton in weight.

This year they have set a new local record with the numbers signing up to the OT campaign at almost 300 members, beating last year's figure by 50 - no small achievement.

The second weigh-in is tomorrow (Wednesday) at 8 p.m. in the Park Hotel and judging by the sea of fluorescent jackets lighting up the town every day we could well see some more records set in the coming weeks.

Group walks are held every Saturday morning and Monday evening, with lots of other walks and fun activities during the week led by the eight local leaders. The leaders (and their chosen charities in brackets) are Alison Moore (Alzheimer's Society of Ireland), Jennifer Morley and Tom Lavelle (Mayo Roscommon Hospice), Michael Moran (Riverside, Ballinamore, Western Care, sensory garden), Darren Turtill (Pieta House), Anna Marie King (Cope Foundation), Bridie Clendon (Kiltimagh Tidy Towns) and Katie Duffy (Every Life Counts).

Of course, Kiltimagh isn't the only OT campaign in Mayo, with Mayo Sports Partnership leading the charge with 5k walks around the county last Saturday. Do get in touch to let us know what your group is up to.
