A mum-of-two from Stenton is calling for volunteers to take part in the Big Collection Weekend to raise funds for charity Diabetes UK.
Nicky Hawkins decided to get involved in the charity event because her eight-year-old son Freddie has type 1 diabetes – a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood sugar level to become too high.
She has organised a collection at the Tesco store in Haddington from October 4-6 as part of the company’s partnership with Diabetes UK. The venture aims to make life better for those who have diabetes or are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
