Dedicated dieters who have lost up to nine stones on a slimming programme won the chance to be stars for a day.

Slimmers on the Reshape Rotherham initiative, a free NHS weight loss service run by The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, were given the chance to be entered into a prize day for the day of pampering.

First prize winner was Catherine Froggatt, from Mexborough, who lost one-and-a-half stones on the 10-week course and enjoyed a makeover and photoshoot.

She said: “I really enjoyed the course and winning the makeover and photo-shoot was a really pleasant surprise.

“It’s not often I find time to be pampered.

“I had a great day and to make the most of the occasion, I also went out for a meal with my husband.

“Reshape Rotherham has educated me on healthy eating and also on different ways to keep my eating under control.”

One of the biggest losers on the programme is Charles Jeffcoate, who has shed nine stones.

He won tickets to a Rotherham United football match.

Charles said: “Since completing the Reshape programme I am much more mobile, I cook healthier meals and I now plan to start a four-week cooking course.

“Overall, I really enjoyed the programme and meeting the other people on the course, I certainly didn’t expect to win anything.”

The final winner was Raymond Taylor from Sheffield, who has lost weight and also lowered his insulin levels since joining the Reshape programme.

He won a gym membership in the prize draw.
