Manuala Whanon raised money by for the Abel Foundation by giving up sugar and has lost a stone in weight over the last month.

On Tuesday she presented a cheque to the charity's Karen Hamilton at its new offices in London Street.

Karen said: "Manuela has made it her mission day and night, to let people in Andover and beyond, know all about our charity and what it is about.

"Her passion for raising awareness for us has just been outstanding."

Throughout her fundraising challenge Manuala has been helped by a number of businesses and individuals, who she has thanked for their support.
