On Tuesday January 21 Mike was invited along to a fund raising event being held at Wallace House, a sheltered housing complex, in Cheltenham, in aid of Diabetes UK. The event was organised by Andy Selby, a resident at Wallace House. Also invited along was Debra Reeves, who runs the Healthy Feet Mobile Clinic in Cheltenham.
It took the form of a small bring & buy sale, raffle and refreshments. Mike also gave a brief overview of Diabetes and its causes and risk factors and of course what support the Glevum Group can give. Debra gave a brief talk on foot care and offered to check the feet of those attending.
The morning was very successful, with a total of £110.00 being raised; to be split between Diabetes UK and the Glevum Voluntary Group.
Mike would like to thank Andy for organising the event and also all those who attended and made it so successful.
