Diabetes Week is an annual UK-wide initiative devoted to raising awareness of diabetes and raising money to help fund research into the condition.

Set up by British charity group Diabetes UK, this special week is now the annual focal point for all of the charity’s diabetes awareness, campaigning and fundraising activities.

Diabetes Week 2017

Diabetes Week 2017 takes place from 12 to 18 June. The theme is setting the record straight about diabetes.

Diabetes Week is an annual nationwide event and will see a massive range of community events, challenges, races and walks and much more.

Fundraising

Hundreds of events and fundraising activities will be taking place across the UK to mark this year’s Diabetes Week, and this will include a fundraising effort from the team at Diabetes.co.uk.

We have chosen to fundraise for a diabetes charity, which will be chosen with the help of our online community, by climbing to the top of Mount Snowdon in Wales (for the second time).

We will also be raising awareness of diabetes through our Facebook and Twitter pages and offering discounts and special offers on products designed to help make the lives of people with diabetes easier throughout the week.
