The less fortunate and well fed in Africa have benefited from a fat broker becoming much thinner in the UK, Backchat sources report.

Phil Bunker and his ABC Insurance team recently challenged Paul Cosh, managing director of Hero Insurance Services, to lose weight and Cosh, determined to shed the pounds, won the bet and with it a rather large wager.

Backchat understands that the trimmer broker has put his winnings to good use by donating them to Tony Allen’s African Revival charity.

The wager was symbolic of ABC’s drive to help ‘smaller’ brokers grow by taking some weight off the ‘big’ brokers.

Bring on the next challenge.
