THE Lord Mayor of Portsmouth will show support for diabetes awareness when she attends a free screening event in the city centre.

Councillor Lynne Stagg will attend the event in Commercial Road tomorrow.

The roadshow is being run by Lloyds Pharmacy and will offer free diabetes screenings from 9.30am.

Alison Freemantle, pharmacist and diabetes expert, said: ‘Diabetes is a very serious condition.

‘The roadshow aims to help people lessen the impact through the promotion of early identification of Type 2 diabetes.’
