We’re very excited to let you know how you can double your donation to DRWF and make a real difference to people living with all forms of diabetes by supporting our UK wide Diabetes Wellness Events.

DRWF has been selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2017, the UK’s largest match funding campaign. Last year, thanks to generous supporters like you the campaign raised over £7.2 million for participating charities! DRWF doubled our donations and raised a total of £1,840.

This year we have increased our pot to £4,500 so we can raise £9,000!

We are raising money for our programme of Diabetes Wellness Events, which recently won a Quality in Care Diabetes award. These events bring together a wealth of information under one roof for people living with diabetes, their family members, carers, friends and those with an interest in diabetes. The events are run in close collaboration with local healthcare services, complementing and reinforcing key health messages to support good self-management skills for best physical and mental health.

The QiC Judges said: "The Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation has put together a brilliant education support programme with excellent outcomes. The events are clearly user focused, providing an opportunity for peer support and re-engaging those users who have missed out on a structured education."

Donations to our project will be matched for 7 days from 12pm on 28th November #GivingTuesday.

What happens during the Christmas Challenge?

Donations made to our project via theBigGive.org.uk will be doubled during the campaign. If you would like to support our work this year, we highly recommend doing so during the Christmas Challenge when your donation will be doubled and make even more of a difference to us.

What do I need to do?

●      Add a calendar reminder to your diary for 12pm on 28th November with this link to make your donation.

●      Have your 3D secure card details ready when you go online to donate.

Please note you must not pre-fill your details prior to 12pm. A clear message will be displayed to indicate when the Challenge has started and when your donation will be doubled.

You can read more about how to donate in the Christmas Challenge here. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact claire.levy@drwf.org.uk, or call 023 9263 6138.

Finally, please pass on this message to anyone who you think might be interested in supporting us and having their donation doubled.
