Diabetes UK

We provide the vital support people need to ensure they don’t face diabetes alone.

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I ran the 2014 Retford Half Marathon in March and did the Fun Run at the much maligned 2014 Sheffield Half Marathon with my daughter in April. I will also be running the 2014 Yorkshire Marathon in October to raise money for Diabetes UK.

As you may know, this is something personal to me and in October I'll have had Type 1 diabetes for 13 years.  I'm trying to raise £1000 which will go towards a number of worthy causes, such as raising awareness of diabetes, helping to prevent Type 2 diabetes and helping to find a ground breaking cure for Type 1.

As well as raising money, I'm chairman of my local voluntary group and I also run a peer support service in Sheffield.

If you can spare any money at all then I'd be eternally grateful.  You can also donate by texting BROO81 + your amount to 70070 (e.g. text BROO81 £5 to 70070).

Thank you

Andy
