Diabetes UK Northern and Yorkshire is launching its Family Day appeal to coincide with World Diabetes Day.
Family Day is a fun event aimed at helping everyone in the family understand more about diabetes.
The day will offer children with diabetes, their parents and siblings the opportunity to meet other families, find out more about how to manage diabetes and learn about the latest advances in research.
Family Day events require a lot of funding and without it, they cannot go ahead. Various corporate sponsorship opportunities are available and individual fundraisers can also donate their efforts to the appeal.
Diabetes UK aims to hold at least one Family Day event a year in both the North East and in Yorkshire. To hold one family day costs £12,000. However, the more money raised, the more events can take place.
Diabetes is a life-altering condition and it is important to support children and their families to ensure that they are receiving the best treatment and information available.
For more information, please call the regional fundraising team on. You can also support our appeal by downloading a donation form found on the right.
