A Slimming World consultant from Hebden Bridge is feeling ready to make any weight-loss dream come true after meeting soap actor and popstar Jason Donovan.
Tamina Oates, who runs a Slimming World group at the Town Hall, Hebden Bridge every Wednesday, was delighted to get a chance to meet the Australian when he helped present the annual Slimming World Awards.
He co-hosted the event with the organisation’s chair and founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.
Tamina said meeting Jason was a wonderful way to round off a fabulous year for the Hebden Bridge Slimming World group and a great way to get ready for another successful 12 months.
She said: “I couldn’t be prouder of the members of the Hebden Bridge group. They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight, with many of them making their weight loss dreams come true by hitting their target, improving their health and more.”
Jason, who found fame on Australian soap Neighbours, said: “At the awards I met lots of people who have lost incredible amounts of weight and it has completely changed their lives.
“Every single one of them told me that they couldn’t have made the changes they have to eat more healthily and become more active without the help and support of their group and consultant, so people like Tamina are clearly very important.”
