People in Northamptonshire are being invited to take up the opportunity of joining Slimming World for free on referral.

Anyone looking to lose weight with a BMI of more than 30 may be able to qualify for 12 free weeks of Slimming World support in the county if they meet the necessary criteria.

Sonia Mathieson, who runs Slimming World groups in Corby, said: “We have been working with local well-being advisors and are hoping to reach more people who feel they would be interested in attending weekly groups to get fabulous support to shed the pounds.”
