A weight-loss expert from Rushden has struck gold for the exceptional work she has done in helping more than 140 people in the area to lose weight every week

Amie Craddock, who runs the Rushden Thursday Slimming World group every week, was presented with a prestigious Gold Award at the slimming organisation’s annual national awards ceremony in Birmingham on June 25.

In August last year, Amie was named as one of Slimming World’s high-flying Gold Consultants. The accolade is awarded in recognition of achieving the highest levels of support for slimmers, with Amie giving expert advice to help the people of Rushden reach their weight-loss goals week after week.

Amie said: “I’m delighted to have received this Gold Award. I truly love my job and I feel so passionate about helping people to change their lives by losing weight.

“Seeing them succeed is so rewarding and being given this recognition really is the icing on the cake.

“It’s not just a triumph for me though, this award belongs to all of my members too. They’re the ones who make our group the success that it is, with their fabulous commitment, the lovely warm welcome they give new members and the wonderful compassionate support they give each other every week.

“I truly believe I have the best job in the world helping people to lose weight and achieve their dreams. Each week as members lose weight I see them growing in confidence.”

To join the Gold Rushden group, held every Thursday at 9.30am, 11.30am and 1.30pm at Masonic Hall, Wellingborough Road, either visit or phone Amie on 07730 795235.
