Michelle Lucas, manager of the charity's shop in Bodmin, said: "We welcome clothes in all shapes, sizes and styles, and were thrilled to receive such a huge donation of clothing from the Slimming World groups in the area.
"It's amazing to think that they've lost so much weight that they've all got so many clothes to clear out from their wardrobes.
"And we're delighted that they've chosen to use their success to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
"The money their old clothes raise will make a huge difference to people fighting cancer."
