A SUPER slimmer from Castle Bromwich has been rubbing shoulders with celebrities at a recent awards ceremony.
Patricia Finneran, who runs a weekly slimming group at St Clements Church in Castle Bromwich, met funnyman Jason Manford at the Slimming World’s annual awards event.
Salford-born stand-up Jason, who has appeared on a string of television shows including Show Me the Funny, Comedy Rocks and Live at the Apollo, joined Slimming World’s founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE, FRSA to host the ceremony.
He said: “Presenting the Slimming World Awards was a real honour. I was blown away by the achievements of all of the slimmers who joined us on stage.
“Throughout the day I met so many inspirational people, not only the slimmers but the amazing people like Patricia who run the groups and help them achieve so much.”
Patricia said meeting the comedian was the ‘perfect ending’ to an ‘extraordinary’ year.
