Story

Sunday 14th November marks World Diabetes Day. This year we are fundraising to support all children with Type 1 diabetes in our Gibraltar community.

Having Type 1 diabetes impacts on every aspect of their lives. Aside from the daily chore of multiple finger pricks, injections, site and pump cannula changes, etc. to manage and control this auto immune disease, these amazing kids are also required to undertake blood tests every 3 months to confirm their HbA1c (haemoglobin A1c) levels; which calculates their average level of blood sugars over the previous 2-3 months.

On Sunday 14th November we will be hosting a charity walk to raise sufficient funds to purchase a clinic HbA1c analyser for the Children's Primary Care Centre, Gibraltar.

This will allow our Type 1 kiddos to check their HbA1c levels during their quarterly clinic check-up with just 1 finger prick - no more blood tests!!

Registration will be from 09:30a.m. from Casemates Square. The route of the walk will take us down Main Street onto Queensway, along New Harbours Road, Watergardens to loop back round to Casemates.

Type 1 diabetics may be 'used to needles' but having blood tests every 3 months is stressful, traumatic and unnecessary. Please help us to give generously and support our warriors - every little helps! Thank you!
