A group of Slimming World Consultants from Tallaght, Bohernabreena and Templeogue celebrated their groups’ successes by meeting chat show host and comedian, Alan Carr. Alan, a well-loved TV personality, co-hosted the annual Slimming World Awards with the organisation’s founder and chair Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE. Margaret opened her first group in 1969 and over the last 50 years Slimming World has become the nation’s favourite way to lose weight, supporting almost one million slimmers. The team, who run Slimming World groups in Dublin, were delighted to get a chance to meet Alan.
Alan, who presented comedy chat show Chatty Man on Channel 4, said it was great to be invited to the event, which was held at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre. He said: “I met so many people who had transformed their lives and it was clear how much the support they received from their ‘Slimming World family’ meant to them. Every one of them spoke passionately about how they couldn’t have made those changes to eat more healthily and become more active without the support of their Consultants and group every week. I left the awards feeling so uplifted and positive, I wish I could’ve bottled that Slimming World feeling.
