Gifts that will help people to manage their diabetes are among a range of products on offer during Black Friday and Cyber Weekend from the Diabetes UK online shop.
Black Friday, held today until midnight, has become a chance in the run-up to Christmas for shoppers to pick up great bargains. Fresh deals will also be on offer from midnight over Saturday and Sunday for Cyber Weekend.
Monies raised from purchases from its online shop will help Diabetes UK to support the 3.5 million diagnosed with the condition in the UK, campaign to improve the quality of care available to them and work to stem the rising tide of Type 2 diabetes.
