As Slimming World enters its 50th year, a local consultant with groups in Maghaberry and Lisburn is marking half a century of success for the organisation by meeting TV personality and presenter Rylan Clark-Neal.
Rylan, who shot to fame after appearing on hit show The X-Factor, co-hosted the annual Slimming World Awards with the organisation’s founder and chair Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.
Rachael Elliott, who runs a Slimming World group at Maghaberry Community Centre, Maghaberry every Monday and Trinity Methodist Church, Lisburn every Thursday, was delighted to get a chance to meet Rylan.
Rachael said meeting the TV host was a wonderful way to round off a great year at Slimming World, as well as a brilliant way to start 2019 – Slimming World’s Golden Year,
“I couldn’t be prouder of my members, not only have they lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2018 – with many of them hitting their target weights – they’ve also improved their health, boosted their confidence and are heading into 2019 with new healthy habits that will stay with them for life,” she said.
