Coventry Diabetes UK Support Group at Vaisaskhi 2018

The Coventry Diabetes UK Support Group were at the Vaisakhi Sports Day at Memorial Park on the 6th May. People in the South Asian community are at much higher risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. The stall was attended by Alison Currie and Steve Chetwynd ( both pictured) and Keith Blake our Community Champion.

We spoke to over 40 people, gave out information and offered support to those living with the condition, and their families, offering suggestions on ways to best manage the condition and deal with some of the consequences. We were visited by Councillor Balvinder Kaur (Foleshill Ward), who was happy to see us there and encouraged us to keep up the good work.

The Coventry Diabetes UK Support Group will also be at the Lions Club of Coventry Godiva Mela at the Coventry Transport Museum on Saturday 26th May 2918. Please come along and see us.
