Sixty volunteers make South West diabetes roadshows a success

Thank you to our 61 volunteers who joined our Roadshow Team in Avonmouth, Bath, Barnstaple, Taunton and Bridgwater, Torquay, Truro, Swindon and Weston-Super-Mare during 2016.

Volunteers did a fantastic job talking with the public about how to make simple changes in lifestyle that could prevent the development of Type 2 diabetes. We helped 1,390 people find out if they are at risk and referred 673 people to their GP.

As well as the serious stuff there was also plenty of laughs, hula-hooping and bike riding to encourage people to get active and have fun at the same time.
