DAN Beaumont, who works at Make Believe Ideas, finds it hard to resist the lovely cake sold at his firm’s downstairs cafe.

He is business director of the Berkhamsted-based children’s story publishing company and is taking part in The Biggest Loser for Northchurch-based The Hospice of St Francis.

The 18-week sponsored weight loss task began on Wednesday, January 4.

The winner is the person who loses the biggest per cent of their body weight. He is up against 20 others, including Gazette editor John Francis – see page 28.

He weighed 24st 8 pounds at the start of the challenge, but has lost 17lbs so far. He said: “It’s going well, but I am about to step it up.”
