Thank you to everyone in Wales and the South West 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:
Gita Modgil from Banwell in North Somerset took part in the Freak Events Milfield Triathlon on Sunday 26 August with her friends Linda Purnell, and Jenny Langlands, and raised £640 (pictured).
Rohan Chadwick from Bristol took part in the Manic Mountain Goats' Total Warrior Challenge. This event took place over the first weekend of August, and involved a 10k obstacle course on the Saturday and a 10 mile version on the Sunday. Rohan has type 1 diabetes and has raised over £700 for JDRF.
Cherry Class from Ditcheat Primary School, Somerset, rasied £128.95 by holding a coffee morning during Diabetes Awareness Week in aid of JDRF.
JDRF was delighted to be named charity of the year for the Carten100 bike ride (pictured) and Mumbai Ball. Both events were a spectacular success, owing to the level of support from over 650 participants involved. We’d like to thank everyone involved in the organisation and delivery of these two events, and to our sponsor Ypsomed for their generosity in supplying goody bags for the cyclists.
Thank you to everyone who took part in this year's Bristol 10k on Sunday 20 May. It was another great year with plenty of groups and individuals running for JDRF, we hope to see you there again next year.
