Join one of our events, or create your own!

You can fundraise for us by organising your own event, anything from a coffee morning, quiz night or a raffle at your workplace, social group, or something completely different, it’s up to you!

We want your event to be as fun, successful and most importantly, as safe as possible. Always be sure to check with the relevant authorities before undertaking any kind of event open to members of the public.

We can also tell you how to set up your own fundraising page on Enthuse, the platform we use to help you achieve your fundraising goal.

How We Can Help at DRWF


Each year we run events for people living with diabetes, ranging from educational workshops and wellness events, to fundraising marathons and group skydives. To find out more about our events and how we support people living with diabetes, please visit our Events Page.


Since 1998 we have provided over £12 million of funding for medical research programmes, with the aim of finding a cure for all types of diabetes. In 2004, we made a significant commitment to Islet Cell Research and Transplant, a programme which focuses on the role of islet cells in diabetes. Read more about our commitment to research by visiting our Research Page.


We rely on our amazing donors who raise the funds that help support people living with diabetes across the UK, as well as funding our vital research programmes. There are lots of ways to raise money to support people living with all forms of diabetes, there’s something for everyone! To discover more about fundraising with us, please visit our Fundraising Page
