Inspiring and motivating hundreds of people to lose weight has earned Caroline Griffiths her second “Oscar.’’

Caroline, who helps more than 250 people in Burnley to lose weight every week, was presented with her gold award at Slimming World’s national awards.

The honour places Caroline in the top 5% of the organisation’s 3,500 consultants, meaning that Burnley is home to some of the best slimming support in the UK. She was one of a high flying group of 73 Slimming World consultants who have all become gold or senior consultants in the past year.

This is the second time Caroline has won the award since she became a consultant in 2001.

Caroline, who runs classes at Burnley Football Club and St Cuthbert’s Church, said: “I am delighted to have received the Gold Award again. I love my job, I’m passionate about helping people to change their lives by losing weight and seeing them succeed is reward enough so being given this recognition really is the icing on the cake.’’

Members of both classes have lost 500 stones between them so far this year.
