I would like to encourage your readers to have a summer tea party to help raise vital funds for Diabetes UK’s Care For A Cuppa campaign.

The charity is urging people to organise tea parties to help support research and other diabetes-related projects.

I know first-hand the impact diabetes can have on people with diabetes and their family as my brother has Type 1 diabetes.

In the UK, there are 2.8 million people diagnosed with diabetes and it is estimated that a further 850,000 people have Type 2 diabetes but don’t know it.

Diabetes is a serious condition that can lead to devastating complications including heart disease, blindness and amputation if untreated or not diagnosed early enough.

Throwing a Care For A Cuppa tea party this Summer is a great way to entertain friends, family and colleagues with the knowledge it can make a real difference to the lives of people with diabetes. To register for a party and receive a fundraising pack, please contact the Diabetes UK Care For A Cuppa team on 020 7424 1870 or email For more information visit

Enjoy your cuppa!
