Support Diabetes UK
I am looking for enthusiastic volunteers in or near to Harlow, Essex to help me collect donations for Diabetes UK in your local Tesco store.
I signed up as a Team Leader for the Big Collection because I recently became aware of the millions of people with diabetes and some of the serious long term problems it can cause.
I am looking for 24 volunteers to support the collection weekend taking place at the Tesco store in Harlow Church Langley on 4, 5 and 6 October 2013.
This is the largest collection Diabetes UK has organised and it is a great way to raise awareness of diabetes while raising money for a good cause.
The weekend is being organised as part of a major national charity partnership between Diabetes UK and Tesco. The partnership aims to make life better for those with the condition or at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
The collection is only made possible with the support of people who give up their time, so why not spend a few hours of the weekend collecting money for a condition that affects one in 20 people.
With your help we can make a real difference to the 3 million people in the UK living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and help find the 850,000 more who remain undiagnosed with Type 2.
If you can spare three hours, simply visit the website www.diabetes.org.uk/tesco-collection-weekend to find your nearest store.
