Slim clubs hit a high note with Jason
DREAMS really have come true for three local women who have reached weight-loss targets and have been congratulated by singer Jason Donovan.
Jane Eaton, Dawn Bell and Amie Craddock were delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to the Australian heart-throb when he swapped Ramsay Street for the annual Slimming World Awards. He co-hosted the event with the organisation’s chairman/founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell.
At the awards, Jason said: “I’ve met lots of people who’ve lost incredible amounts of weight and it has completely changed their lives. So people like Dawn and Amie and Jane who run Slimming World groups are very important.”
Dawn, who runs a Slimming World group at Raunds Football Club every Monday and St Mary’s Church Community Hall, Bozeat every Thursday, said “I couldn’t be prouder of our members. They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2015, with many of them making their weight loss dreams come true by hitting their target weight, improving their health and more.”
Jane manages Slimming World groups in Corby. She said meeting Jason was a wonderful way to round off a fabulous year for Slimming World, as well as a great way to get ready for another successful 12 months: “It’s so rewarding to see people being able to do things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight, whether that’s wearing smaller clothes, taking up new hobbies, reducing medication or being able to do more with their family and friends. Every week I feel so lucky to play even a small part in people’s achievements and I felt very honoured to represent all of the Slimming World groups in Corby when I met Jason. Now I feel incredibly motivated and I can’t wait to support more people to lead healthier, happier lives in 2016.”
Amie, who runs a Slimming World group at The Masonic Hall, Rushden, every Thursday, said: “I truly believe that joining their local Slimming World group is the best way for people to lose weight and learn new habits.
“What I love is that while our members lose weight, they also grow in confidence and happiness – we joke the only thing that gets bigger at our groups is our smiles!”
