Inspirational individuals have been honoured at a slimming group’s annual awards night.
Sian Spall, Kirsty Penny and Kayleigh Garvin were named Miss Slinky 2014 for their combined weight loss of more than eight stone by Great Cornard’s Slimming World group.
For the first time, the group also held a Mr Sleek competition, with John Hail, Stefan Loveridge and Jon Plumb named the victors for shedding a total of 14 stone.
The six winners will now be entered into the national competition, where there is a £2,000 top prize.
Miss Garvin, from Parker Place, Sudbury, said: “I was already really looking forward to this Christmas and feeling glamorous enough to wear the outfits I’ve been dreaming of.
“Winning the title of Miss Slinky means I have even more to celebrate.”
Mr Loveridge, from Crayford Road, Sudbury, said: “Being voted for by the other members of the group is really great.
“As a man, joining a slimming club was a big decision and very nerve-wracking, but I can honestly say it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.”
