Diabetes UK say thanks for £37k

I AM writing to thank your readers for supporting the Big Collection weekend at Tesco stores across Northern Ireland.

With the help of many volunteers and the kind donations made by Tesco customers, we raised an incredible £37,309.45 for Diabetes UK – and we are still counting.

We were overwhelmed by the number of people who volunteered to help us. If you were one of the enthusiastic volunteers and you would like to get involved in other activities with Diabetes UK, we'd like to hear from you.

Whether you can spare an hour a month, or a day a week, there are several ways you can get involved. Opportunities include supporting people living with diabetes, raising awareness of the condition, joining a local voluntary group, or being a media volunteer.

Visit /get_involved/volunteer/; email:; or contact: heather.froggatt@ in the Belfast office.


National director, Diabetes UK (NI)
