The money was raised through a variety of activities including the organisation’s annual Santa Sleigh.
Club President, John Alder said:
As well as donating £700 towards Diabetes UK’s valuable work, Boroughbridge Lions club will be looking to work with the charity in holding an awareness weekend in the centre of the town to coincide with National Diabetes Week in June. We want to help make local residents more aware of the condition and what local support is available.
The local Lions club will be continuing their efforts to raise awareness of the condition in the local community with a number of events planned over the coming months.
Tyler Anderson, Diabetes UK Regional Fundraiser added:
We are incredibly grateful to the Boroughbridge Lions Club for all their hard work raising awareness of diabetes and funds which will help us move closer to a world where diabetes can do no harm.
