Nailing Diabetes 2020

Nailing Diabetes

Nailing Diabetes will be returning this year for World Diabetes Day, so join us by painting your nails blue on 14 November. In 2020 our first ever Nailing Diabetes raised over £12,500 and we'd love for you to join us this year. If you'd like to find out more, please email

Share your photo to raise awareness of diabetes, and donate to help us change lives.

For everyone living with diabetes. For the mums, dads, sisters, brothers, sons, daughters, grandparents, and best friends.

And for you. For the days you feel like you're nailing your diabetes, and the days you don't. And for everyone who's been there to support you on those tough days.

Diabetes can feel overwhelming sometimes, but we’re in this together – and together we'll make a difference.
