A Great Cornard woman who runs a weight-loss group in the village has been given an award in recognition of her efforts.
Kath Hampshire has successfully built-up a following of 50 members and has already helped more than 100 people lose weight under her guidance.
Now she has been given a bronze award from Slimming World for her efforts.
“I am delighted,” said Mrs Hampshire, who has started another club, such is the popularity of her classes.
“I feel passionately about helping people to transform their lives by losing weight.
“Seeing members reach their target weight is so rewarding and receiving this award is just the icing on the cake.
“The group has put healthy weight loss on the map in Great Cornard – together, they have lost an amazing 101st 8lb this year.”
