Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My son, Tristan, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 6 years ago. This life-long condition means he would need to keep a close eye on his blood-sugar levels by monitoring himself numerous times a day, injecting insulin after each meal and before bedtime, and attending a long list of appointments to ensure he lives a healthy life. 

Not doing so could lead to life-threatening complications including heart disease, stroke, neuropathy or blindness. 

On the 26th of January, just before my 50th birthday, I have decided to host a fundraising event where I will shave my hair to raise money for Diabetes UK, this evening will also include entertainment and live music.

Any donation can go towards research for better technology to help diabetics live an easier life, create new and innovative ways to keep control of their condition, and ultimately to help find a cure. 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
