    Weʼve raised £50 to support the Torbay and South Devon Paediatric Diabetes charitable fund

    Funded on Saturday, 6th October 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    On 23rd June the four of us are running the Inflatable 5km in Exeter, to raise money for our peadiatric diabetes team. Well, the children will probably be pulling mum and dad around the course!

    On 21st February 2017 Thijs was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. His body had attacked his pancreas so that it no longer produced insulin to enable glucose into his cells. Without treatment his organs would have started shutting down.

    Torbay and South Devon Peadiatric Diabetes team continue to help us try to manage this complicated illness. This charitable fund provides opportunities for children with diabetes to meet together through various activities, for support and education.

    Diabetic children in Devon would very much appreciate any support you can give. Thankyou

      We did it! In the midday heat, it was tougher than I thought. Thijs won - he seemed to sprint effortlessly around and finished in under half an hour. I was the last of The Bandsmas - the running was ok but the obstacles were a nightmare. Got stuck in the spiderweb, but I was the only one to do the leap of faith at the end! Thanks to those that sponsored us, there’s still time for anyone that would still like to
