The Big Collection 2014
For a second year Diabetes UK have teamed up with Tesco to collect money for research. This year the research topic is to find out more about the increase of diabetes in children. Our volunteers spent 3 days collecting at the Tesco store in Dorchester. The collecting was in peaks and troughs; and interspersed with answering questions about diabetes. We also listened to the diabetes stories from members of the public who came over for a chat. All our efforts resulted in collecting a total of £881.47. The current SW total stands at £11,412. However we still have some ‘income in transit’ from the Lions Groups that supported the Big Collection in the South West too. The national total currently stands at £210,000.
