I’m writing to
invite you to join about an exciting new campaign being launched by
Slimming World in Brierley later this month.
the people of Brierley to join our ‘Let’s Beat It Together’
community weight loss campaign. You’ll already be aware that obesity
is one of the greatest issues facing the UK today, and our area is
no exception: in Yorkshire and the Humber , obesity rates are
currently around 23%. This is bad news for our whole community.
First and foremost, it means personal unhappiness, low self esteem
and increased risk of weight-related illnesses such as diabetes,
heart disease and cancer for all of those people struggling to
manage their weight. It affects families, schools, and of course it
puts pressure on our local GPs, hospitals and on employers in terms
of lost working days.
Obesity is a
community problem – and with weekly groups in the heart of our
community, Slimming World is perfectly placed to help. During week
commencing 22nd February we’re launching our national ‘Let’s Beat It
Together’ campaign, inviting the people of Brierley to get together
with people in communities all over the UK to help turn the rising
tide of obesity, and we’d love you to support us.
You can get
involved in several ways:
• We’d be thrilled
if you would help us promote our campaign on your website, and
continue to feedback weekly updates on the progress our members are
• Join us at our
campaign launch party in the Methodist Church on
Monday 22 February at 6.30pm
– we’re having a special event to launch the campaign. There’ll be
plenty of healthy and delicious food on offer to show people that
healthy eating can be deliciously satisfying and that with the right
support losing weight can be easy and enjoyable, and we’ll be
talking about all the health benefit that losing weight can
bring to Brierley.
We very much hope
you’ll join us in this vitally important campaign to make Brierley a
healthier, happier place!
