7:30am Sunday 21st October 2012 in News
Diamond leaders: Weight Watchers UK operations director Samantha Rhodes presents Liz Berkely-White with her award.
TWO Wyre Forest Weightwatchers leaders have been awarded diamond status after helping their members lose a total of 900 stone this year.
Liz Berkely-White, of Bewdley and Carole Jordan, of Kidderminster, who have lost five stone between them, were awarded the diamond leader status at the Weightwatchers conference.
The award, which celebrates leaders who have provided exceptional support to their members during their weight loss, is given out once every two years to a select group of leaders across the country.
The 900 stone that the two leaders have helped their members lose is the equivalent of 8 mini cooper cars.
Samantha Rhodes, who presented Mrs Berkely-White and Ms Jordan their awards, said: “At the heart of Weight Watchers success are inspiring leaders like Liz and Carole.
“Between them they have 17 and a half years of providing inspiration and support to Weight Watcher members. We are delighted to have them as part of the team and immensely proud of the difference they have makes in their local community”
Mrs Berkely-White runs three meetings a week, on Tuesday in Bewdley, on Wednesday morning in Stourport and Wednesday evening in Kidderminster.
Ms Jordan runs two meetings on Tuesday in Kidderminster and on Thursday in Franche.
