People in Southwark can now get information on diabetes and its complications at their local market.
You will be able to visit a diabetes information stand at Southwark Park Road market from 23 April 2009.
The Mayor of Southwark, Councillor Eliza Mann, who has chosen Diabetes UK as charity of the year, will officially open the stand on 23 April at 9.30am.
The stand will be run by Pastor Olusegun Odofin from the Redeemed Christian Church of God, City of Glory Parish, Southwark, with members of his congregation.
The initiative is one of the success stories brought on by the Diabetes UK diabetes awareness toolkit training workshops.
