Women ‘cuddle up’ to Peter Andre!
SINGER Peter Andre has congratulated a team of weight loss consultants from Southport on their work helping slimmers ‘transform their lives.’
Andre co-presented the annual Slimming World Awards in Birmingham recently with the organisation’s founder and chair Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE. Dee Wright, Carol Wylie, Pamela Crossen, Sheila Bolton and Fiona Foulder from the Southport group were delighted to get a chance meet the Mysterious Girl singer. Earlier this year, he supported Slimming World’s most successful fundraising event ever, the Big Slimming World Clothes Throw, which raised a record-breaking £3.3 million in just two weeks.
The annual campaign encourages Slimming World’s 900,000 group members to donate the clothes, shoes, bags and accessories that are now too big for them to Cancer Research UK.
Dee Wright said: “Cuddling up to Peter was a real treat. He was bowled over by the difference we make to people’s lives and it reminded us what important and privileged roles we have as consultants.”
Peter Andre added: “It was an honour to be invited to present the Slimming World Awards. I met so many incredible people who had lost amazing amounts of weight and transformed themselves – inside and out.
“There’s absolutely no doubt in my mind that the people who run the groups are very special.”
