A FAT-FIGHTING fitness worker will be leading the way this summer after being chosen to carry the Olympic torch.

Weight reduction support worker Pippa Goodwin, who helps severely overweight people from Belper to combat their difficulties, was nominated by a work colleague for the honour of carrying the torch in Derby.

Nordic walking enthusiast Pippa, aged 47, who works for Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust’s Tier Three Weight Reduction Service.

Pippa, from Long Eaton, said: “I don’t think I can hold the walking poles and the torch as the same time so I think it will have to be a very slow jog instead!”
