Diabetes UK wants to thank all the glorious ghouls and wicked witches from Sheffield who got into the spirit of dressing up for our Dress Diabolical event, raising vital funds.
From devilish children to zombie bus drivers, hundreds of people from all over the UK got sponsored to dress up and have fun on Friday, October 30. And we’re sure film director Tim Burton, who backed the campaign, would have appreciated the sight of Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice working hard in an office.
Money raised will help us to fund research into diabetes, campaign on key issues, and offer education and support to more people who are living with the condition.
There are now 3.9 million people with diabetes in the UK, a number that is growing rapidly – but the right support at the right time can help people to manage their condition and live long, healthy lives.
If you would like to take part in one of our fundraising events, see what we have coming up at diabetes.org.uk/fundraising
