A weight-loss expert from Ilkeston has struck gold for the work she does in helping more than 150 people in the area to lose weight every week.
Steph Henshaw, who runs the Ilkeston Hospital Slimming World group, was presented with a Gold Award at the national slimming club’s annual awards ceremony last week.
She said: “I am delighted to have received this Gold Award. I love my job, I’m passionate about helping people to change their lives by losing weight and seeing them succeed is reward enough so being given this recognition really is the icing on the cake.
“It’s not just a triumph for me though, this award belongs to my members too.
“The Ilkeston group has really put healthy weight loss on the map in Ilkeston.
“Together, the Ilkeston group have already lost an amazing 249 stone and 9.5lbs this year.”
