A CHARITY supporting people with diabetes is asking people to pull on their walking boots and go the extra mile to help them with their work.

Diabetes UK has organised the Walk the Extra Mile event through Clifton Park in Rotherham on Sunday, June 12, with all money raised set to go towards their work supporting research and other diabetes-related projects.

The one-mile circuit, set up to coincide with the start of Diabetes Week which runs until June 18, will be started by the Mayor of Rotherham Coun Sean Wright at 10am.

People can register in advance or from 9am on the day. Visit www.diabetes.org.uk, email tnougherfuller@btinternet.com or call 01709 852057 to sign up.
