This year the Stuart Finals Day on June 28 will have a charity element to it and will be in aid of the Diabetes UK Fylde Coast Childrens Support Group.
This page will let you know what events are planned for the day and give you information on how you can get involved if you would like to volunteer.
A message from the charity:
We are a new charity, set up with the intention of supporting children with diabetes and their families. Type 1 Diabetes is a lifelong incurable condition. Many children are affected and the impact of this condition is very serious. All the children require constant monitoring of their blood sugar levels and regular daily injections, for some that means four times a day! At the moment our diabetic children are also suffering from the very negative messages being put out in the media. Unlike type 2 Diabetes, type 1 can not be brought on by an unhealthy lifestyle or obesity, but very rarely is the difference acknowledged. The intention of the charity is to provide a supportive network for the families and more importantly to give these brave children a good time in an environment where they are not the odd one out.
