Sam's Story and her Award Success
This year’s awards are the 4th National Annual Awards, in association with Ideal Weight, celebrate the individuals and organisations across the UK who are providing outstanding activities, classes, services and events for adults. Attaining yourIdeal Lifestyleis usually very tough, as we all try to balance the demands of work and family and other commitments. So when we find local activities and amazing activity providers who provide us with an excellent service, who give us great coaching to attain our goals, then it's only right that we should reward them.
With over 1,000 nominations and over 20,000 votes received last year, our What's On 4 Me 2013 Awards truly recognised the great work that our UK activity providers do, especially the ones who you feel go above and beyond the call of duty.
And we're announcing our Winners at our fabulous Awards Ceremony at Earls Court, London, as part of the Ideal Home Show at Christmas.
