What a night!!
On 13th May 2017 four guys hosted a charity ball to raise money and awareness for diabetes, they were over-whelmed when over 500+ people attended the conference suite of the Celtic Manor. With the wine and drinks flowing it was easy to lose sight of why everyone was there. Until a mum of a little boy called Peter, took to the stage and bravely told her story of the day her son Peter slipped into a coma after being diagnosed too late with Type 1 Diabetes, and urged every to be aware of the signs of such a silent disease, Thirst, Tiredness, Sudden Weight loss, going to the toilet frequently.
The reason these four friends have decided to carry out such a feat to tackle the Atlantic Ocean is to support their long time friend Hugo who last year was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.
The night was a great success to raise money and sponsorship for Monty, John, Hugo & Joel but also in highlighting the dangers of ignoring the signs that can be missed with diabetes and knowing that support and help is available if needed.
Thank you from us at RG Hearing & Livertons for a great night and we are proud to sponsor such a great cause.
