Thank you to everyone in the Midlands who is helping us find the cure for type 1 diabetes - we really appreciate your support. Here are some of our latest people to thank:

Alastair Long from Loughborough made the ultimate sacrifice for JDRF and lobbed his lovely long locks off, raising over £2,000! Alastiar (pictured) has been growing his hair for over 15 years, but chose to go bald for JDRF after his two year old son Kyle was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in January.
