St David's Church, Friday Cafe Health Awareness Day, Friday 3 February 2017
- 14 February 2017
Diabetes UK volunteers Cherry Bowmaker and Emma Blake had a surprise visitor to their Diabetes UK stand, Mango, the handsome Barn Owl looked very interested in what they had to say.
Cherry and Emma were representing Diabetes UK at the Health Awareness Day at St David’ s Church and Community centre in Childwall, Merseyside.
The event was well attended by members of the local community and the Diabetes UK stand attracted much attention. Both Emma and Cherry raised awareness about diabetes and the support, Diabetes UK has to offer. Cherry, as chairperson of the St Helens & District Group of Diabetes UK promoted their forthcoming programme of meetings. They also took part in a chair based exercise routine to support Diabetes UK’s commitment to getting active. The owls were there as part of Hack Back CIC who use owls for various therapies.
It was a really enjoyable and productive morning.
