Plea for volunteers in October in Tesco

Diabetes UK Scotland needs volunteers to help co-ordinate a collection weekend at local Tesco stores on October 4, 5 and 6.

The event aims to raise £400,000 to support the 3 million people living with diabetes in the UK and help find the further 850,000 more who remain undiagnosed with Type 2.

Volunteers can select three hour shifts, running from 9am until 6pm on October 4 and 5 and 10am till 4pm on October 6.

A spokesperson said: “This a great way to inform customers about diabetes while raising money for Diabetes UK.”
