A big thank you for everyone who joined us at the Dignity Action Day

 ‘Dignity Disco 2017’


A time to think about what dignity means to us  and to build our own dignity tree.


The Dignity Tree

I'm planting my first seed today
The seed of dignity
In time you'll see my seed will grow
And grow into a tree

A tree fulfilled with knowledge
A plant for all to see
What being a dignity championReally means to me

It's a leaf with an idea on
It's an idea I'd like to share
It's an inspirational idea
It's a leaf to show I care

The tree will always be there
Long after I have gone
To stand up for dignity in care
A challenge to be won

I know you will support me
And I know you'll love the tree
It's not just a tree you know
It's what dignity means to me

Stephen King proudly displaying his Trophy awarded to him by his local Slimming World Leader.


‘I’m not really bothered about my weight but I like going.

I like seeing everyone, I like staying healthy and like getting lots of certificates.’


A huge well done goes out to Stephen for staying so

dedicated to his eating plan.  He even managed to lose one and a half pounds over Christmas!


I asked Stephen what’s the best thing about Slimming World.

‘The Recipe Books and cooking.

‘I like making curry.  The hotter the better’
