What I did on my big 18-30 stone holiday will be emotional

Have your say

AN INFORMATION day for parents and carers of children with Type 1 diabetes is being held.

The Diabetes UK South East Hampshire Families group (Seahawks) will host a family information day in Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham, on Saturday, March 15.

The event will have presentations by diabetes specialists on a variety of topics.

This includes children managing both the psychological and emotional issues surrounding injections, to a session aimed at close relatives and regular carers. There will also be a disco and games for the younger attendees.

Helen Horn, from Fareham, is one of the event organisers, as her daughter was diagnosed with the condition three years ago.

The day’s event starts at 9.45am and to book a place, or for further information, call Helen on 01329 834952.
