It's important to give back to society- Lisa Bawor

'I feel it is important to give back to the charity that helps me'

To celebrate World Diabetes Day on the 14th November, Ferras Nursery School in Luton held a ‘Tea for Diabetes’ (T4D).

The event, which included make up sessions and a charity raffle, raised £206.65 as parents and children enjoyed tea and cakes and learnt more about diabetes.
Organiser Lisa Bawor, whose three-year-old son Theo was diagnosed with diabetes at 18 months (pictured, left), said: "It is so important to me to give something back to the charity that has helped me these last 18 months and to increase awareness of diabetes.

"If one person attends this event and goes away understanding more about this condition, I’ll be happy!"

Many members of the local community attended and took away free information leaflets in a selection of languages. One attendee said: "It is frightening knowing how at risk I am, I will definitely be checking this out further."

Why not help us make a difference by joining us for a Tea for Diabetes this year? We will provide a pack full of ideas, fundraising materials, recipes and a selection of free information materials in a range of languages to help you get your event started.
