British Diabetic Association Summer Fair 2008

SOUTHPORT, Formby and Ormskirk branch of the British Diabetic Association held a summer fair over 21 July to 22 July 2008, on Formby’s Duke Street Park.  The event was to raise funds for the Association.

Peter Wright, local organiser and founder member told us that they wishes to thank all participants and visitors for their support. Peter has been involved for 14 years now and knows at first hand just how valuable the mutual help and support of fellow members can be.

We popped in to see the car boot sale on the Sunday to take a look at what was on offer.   At the show we met up with Peter who told us that the organisation prides itself in keeping in touch with the latest in modern treatment for diabetics world wide. He also informed us that the local Children’s Diabetic Club meets regularly for events and outings.  Anyone interested can make contact on 01704 870759.

The day was well attended. On offer were plenty of goods for sale, a good range of fairground rides and stalls, especially for children, refreshments and activities including a dog competition, as well as Morris Dancers from all round the region, even as far away as Wrexham. St John Ambulance was on hand to help where needed.

Bright sunshine was a welcome adjunct to the day and people were evidently enjoying themselves. Every bit of revenue raised helps this good cause. Congratulations on a well organised event.
