IN THE quest to raise awareness and support for people who have diabetes, the Petersfield and district branch of Diabetes UK aims to donate £1,000 to the charity.

Its next venture will see the charity host a coffee morning at Winton House, Petersfield, on Friday at 9.30am.

There will be the latest Diabetes UK newsletters available for people to see the work that the charity does, and people who have diabetes will be there to 
offer support or explain how they cope with the condition.

The coffee morning follows a busy month in June, with a charity cycle event in Liphook, a sponsored walk around Queen Elizabeth Country Park and an awareness raising stall in Waterlooville.

Group treasurer, Carol McNally wants the support to continue and said: ‘We hope that lots of people combine a visit to our event with their Saturday trip to Petersfield.’
