Slimming World head office hits bullseye for BBC Sport Relief
At Slimming World head office, employees backed the BBC Sport Relief charity campaign by taking part in numerous sporting competitions throughout the day, including a darts team tournament, a sports quiz and a sports-themed caption competition. Staff also donated their loose change to wear casual clothes for the day.
The darts tournament was won by ‘Bullyseye Brigade’, made up of members of Slimming World’s Field Support team which provides support to the company’s 4,000 franchisee Consultants nationwide. From left to right: John Bush, Sharon Rawson, Jane White, Diane Daffin, Gemma Williams.
Slimming World was founded by Margaret Miles-Bramwell (OBE, FRSA) in 1969. There are now more than 18,000 groups held weekly across the UK and Republic of Ireland via a network of 4,000 community-based Slimming World Consultants, who receive specific training in the role of diet and physical activity in weight management, as well as sophisticated behaviour-change techniques.
Slimming World’s healthy eating plan, Food Optimising, is based on the science of satiety and energy density. Our phased activity programme, Body Magic, eases members into activity until it becomes an intrinsic part of their daily routine. The principles behind Slimming World’s philosophy are based on a deep understanding of the challenges faced by overweight people and a recognition that those who struggle with weight carry a double burden, the weight itself and a burden of guilt and shame about their weight. Slimming World’s programme integrates practical, up-to-date advice with a highly developed support system based on care and compassion, and Consultant training focuses on facilitating behaviour change in a warm and friendly group environment. Consultant training is delivered through the Slimming World Academy. Slimming World also invests in a comprehensive research programme to develop its support for long-term weight management. The group support provided by Slimming World is recognised as effective by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the NHS.
