It definitely wasn’t a case of “no likey, no lighty” when a weight loss consultant from Burnley met comedian and TV presenter Paddy McGuinness at an annual awards ceremony.
Caroline Griffiths, who runs a Slimming World group at the 1882 Lounge, at Turf Moor, and St Cuthberts Community Hall, was delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to Paddy when he co-hosted the Slimming World Awards with the organisation’s chair and founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell.
Caroline said meeting Paddy at the event, which was held at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre, marked the end of a great year for the Burnley Slimming World group. “Obviously the most important thing of all is that the group have lost weight and improved their health throughout 2013 and I’m so proud of all of my members – many of them have achieved their target weights and been able do things they never thought possible before slimming down, including doing more with their families, taking up new hobbies, reducing medication or simply fitting in smaller-sized clothes. And they’re helping their families to eat more healthily too.”
