    2 years has passed since @ewelina arranged the 1st of these Meetups.
    Join us for some (many) drinks and cheer to celebrate second anniversary of T1D London Meetups group :) We started 2 years ago, with a small group of 8 . Now there are over 300 of us! We even have our own website now to keep you all up to date with the latest news and going ons www.t1dlondonmeetups.co.uk Would be wonderful to meet all of you in person one day. I cant stress enough how this groups helps me to deal with challenges of life with diabetes, both in emotional and practical asspect. I learned how to manage diabetes from you and since I met you I havent had even one day when I felt down about beeing t1. Actually I can see more positives than negatives :)

    We will meet up on Saturday 18th March at 2pm
    Penderels Oak, 283–288 High Holborn
