Ex-England footballer in Santa Dash call

Former Bristol Rovers, Tottenham and England football legend Gary Mabbutt is supporting the first-ever Diabetes UK South West ‘Santa Dash’ across Clifton Suspension Bridge on Sunday 6 December.

“I am delighted to be supporting the Santa Dash,” said Gary.

“Diabetes is increasing at an alarming rate and, as someone with Type 1 diabetes, I know how much impact this serious condition can have on people’s lives.

"The Santa Dash is a great way to have fun while raising vital funds for Diabetes UK so they can continue supporting people with diabetes across the UK and in their work towards finding a cure."
