Dunfermline family up for slimmers of the year award
September 29, 2012 by Gareth
A super-slim family from Dunfermline is delighted after it was revealed that it has made it to the finals of the Scottish Slimmer of the Year awards.
Edith Graham and her son and daughter, John and Lynne, are looking and feeling great after they learnt that their recent weight loss efforts could earn them the prestigious title of Scottish Slimmers of the Year. Between them, the family members have shed more than 15 stones in weight.
Lynne spoke about her decision to start her weight loss journey, saying:
“After a couple of years of dreadful holiday photos I decided to go along to my local Scottish Slimmers. I mentioned it to my mum and brother to see if they wanted to come along. They jumped at the idea.”
Slimming and fitness groups often use a mixture of posters, leaflets and banners to advertise to the public, encouraging people to join up and lead a healthier lifestyle. Local print companies offering poster and banner printing in Dunfermline often get involved with projects like this. Banner printing is a highly visual way of communicating a short, snappy message and so is popular with those slimming groups which are able to display a banner outside their meeting place.
The Scottish Slimmers of the Year 2012 awards ceremony is set to take place in October, culminating in a celebratory awards ceremony. The winners of the key awards will be announced on the Scottish Slimmers website.
