We’re delighted to be holding another Big Collection, this time during Diabetes Week 2014. Last year our wonderful volunteers raised an incredible £382,000.

This year we will be collecting in 300 large Tesco stores. This is a great opportunity for us to not only raise a lot of money, but also to raise a huge amount of awareness of diabetes and Diabetes UK.

We’re looking for volunteers to help us out over the weekend of 13–15 June 2014. If you can spare a few hours, please sign up now.
