SLIMMERS from Wigan’s Lose Weight Feel Great weight management programme became models for the night at a special fashion show.
Lost Weight, Feel Fabulous, took place at the DW Stadium to celebrate the successes of the scheme carried out by WLCT in partnership with Slimming World, on behalf of Wigan Council. The event, which is sponsored by clothing company Simply Be, raised money for Cancer Research UK.
Emma Martin, of WLCT’s Active Living Team, said: “The fashion show was a huge success once again. We’re so proud of all those who have reached their targets through Lose Weight Feel Great; these ladies work extremely hard on the programme to improve their lifestyles and it’s great that we can give them this recognition.”
Popular men’s weight management programme, Trim Down Shape Up, which is delivered by ABL Health on behalf of Wigan Council, also supported the fashion show and some participants came along to collect awards for accolades such as Mr Weight Loss, Mr Commitment and Mr MVP (most valuable participant).
Cllr Paul Kenny, Cabinet member for Resources, said: “More than 23,000 people have lost over 181,000 pounds through the Lose Weight Feel Great programme since it was set up in January 2009. This is a huge achievement and I’m absolutely delighted with the results we consistently see coming from this scheme. Well done to everyone who has taken part and reached their goals.”
