Well done to group.

SHARON ROBERTS, Regional manager, Diabetes UK Eastern.

I am writing to congratulate the North Norfolk Diabetes UK Group for raising an amazing £11,000 during 2014 to help people living with diabetes.

The group is based in Cromer and also offers vital peer support to its members who are affected by diabetes, either personally or through friends and family.

I would personally like to thank everyone in the North Norfolk group for their efforts, which have included a week-long collection at a local supermarket and a craft fair.

I am delighted the group has decided to donate some of the money raised to two research projects - one looking into sight complications for people living with diabetes and the other supporting teenagers with Type1 diabetes. It is support like this that helps us to continue to help people living with the condition as well as fund research into diabetes. We simply couldn't carry out our work without supporters like the North Norfolk group.
