On the 22nd July the Diabetes UK Roadshow came to Tesco Store, Roneo Corner, Romford.
The staff from Diabetes UK Head Office in London were there bright and early to set up the blue bus ready for the day.
The idea was to give the general public informatin about Diabetes and to make them aware of the condition and how serious it can be, especially if left untreated. People could also have a diabetes assessment to see if they may be at risk of having the condition. There was also a dietician on hand to help wih diet and aswer questions about what we should or should not be eating.
Volunteers from the Havering Group and the Barking & Dagenham Group were also there to help and talk to the public. It was an excellent day with lots of people interested in finding out more about Diabetes.
Thanks to Lesley Davey at Tesco Roneo Corner for all her help to make the day run smoothly as well as Julia Bernardt and the staff from Diabetes UK Head Office. The Mayor of Havering also visited and we thank her for her support.
