A Fenland-based Slimming World Consultant attended a special event in recognition of the support she provides to local people.

Dawn Breacher, who runs the Wimblington Slimming World group at Wimblington Parish Hall every week, was awarded 'gold' status thanks to the number of people she supports each week.

She collected the award at a ceremony in Birmingham earlier this year and was then invited to a 'celebration day' at Slimming World’s headquarters in Derbyshire alongside all of the other ‘gold’ consultants.

Dawn has helped so many of her members to achieve their target weights so far this year and, with many more close to scoring their goals too, she is hugely proud.

She said: “While I’m the one collecting this award, it’s an achievement for everyone in the group – they’ve absolutely gone for gold when it comes to their weight loss!

“Between them, they’ve not only lost weight; they’ve improved their health and transformed their eating habits.

“There’s such a brilliant energy in our group, we have so much fun – everyone’s welcomed with kindness and given so much support.

“There’s no better place to be if you want to lose weight and improve your health!

“Seeing new members arrive at our group with their self-esteem at rock bottom and then seeing those same members grow in confidence and self-belief so much that they can achieve their dreams is nothing short of amazing.

“I truly believe I have the best role in the world.

“The support and training I’ve received from Slimming World has been second to none, and the celebration event was a great way to mark all that we’ve achieved as a group.”

The Wimblington Slimming World group is held every Monday at 9.30am or 11am at Wimblington Parish Hall, Addison Road.
