June 2019 Press Release



The next meeting of the Coventry Diabetes UK Group is being held on the 17th June 2019 from 7:30-9pm at the Salvation Army, Upper Well Street, Coventry. 

To end National Diabetes Week (9-16th June We will be holding our annual fundraising bucket collection around the town on Saturday 15th June. This year it will have a twist with a display of shoes in Broadgate to help raise awareness of how serious diabetes is and the fact that the majority of diagnosis can be avoided. Please come along and have a chat if you have any questions.

Our meeting on Monday will be a brief catch up after our two events on Saturday.

Followed by our Guest Speaker  Dr Chris Harrold, Consultant in Diabetes, from UHCW. Chris has a particular interest in supporting staff and patients within the hospital wards. He is hoping to develop an information pack to help people with diabetes who are admitted to hospital. He is interested to share your experiences and this will be an excellent way for us to influence the care we receive when in hospital.

Refreshments will be available and we will also be holding our usual raffle with donated prizes. This raises vital funds to support the groups community work. Our meeting dates for 2019 are also available, for those of you wanting to get ahead.
