Walk for Diabetes event next month

A CHARITY is looking for people to sign up and take part in a sponsored Walk for Diabetes event around the southern half of Alexandra Park to raise vital funds.

The event, which is on Saturday, June 14 is being run on behalf of Diabetes UK.

The challenge, organised by the Hastings and Rother Voluntary Group, is part of the Walk for Diabetes series of sponsored events around the country.

The walks are aiming to help people to be more physically active and to live a healthier lifestyle.

The Walk for Diabetes series are being sponsored by Truvia calorie free sweetener.

Nikki Verra, Diabetes UK’s regional fundraiser for the south east region, said: “Walking is a great form of exercise and good for everyone.

“The Walk for Diabetes is a fun, safe activity that the whole family can get involved in, while raising money for Diabetes UK.

“You can take as long as you like to complete the walk, or if you don’t fancy doing the walk in Hastings, then we can help you organise one yourself.

“The money raised from the walks will help us get information and support to the 13,000 people living with diabetes in Hastings and Rother.”
