We Won an Award!

We Won an Award!

The Herefordshire Diabetes UK Local Group’s support for the local community was recognised with the Midlands Campaigning and Influencing Award at a special event for Diabetes UK supporters in Derby. Shaleen Sandhu, our West Midlands Volunteer Co-ordinator, came along to visit us in December to present the Award to the Committee.

Peter Shorrick, Midlands and East Regional Head at Diabetes UK, said: “Nothing is too much trouble for this group, they have also organised coffee mornings for people to meet informally and chat about their diabetes, they organise fundraising activities to help support the group and are known to wear very eye catching fancy dress costumes at some of these events. 

“Through our Inspire Awards we thank our hard-working volunteers like the incredible Hereford Diabetes UK Local Group for their contributions, and celebrate the positive difference their work makes to the lives of people living with diabetes. 

“They really are a shining example and we salute the amazing work this group does and this award is very well-deserved.”
