West End resident Mandy Christie recently stepped down as Secretary of Dundee Diabetes Scotland Group – many thanks go to Mandy for all her work in this role. Mandy was also previously actively involved with the former Blackness Area Residents’ Association.
Unless more local people now come forward to help, unfortunately Dundee Diabetes Scotland Group cannot continue in its current form as there are now only two committee members left.
Allan Kirkwood is Volunteer Development Manager at Diabetes Scotland and he would love to see the Dundee Group continue in some form.
He said, “The Dundee Diabetes Group is believed to be the longest established in Scotland and has been running for over 50 years. Type 2 Diabetes is a major health issue in Dundee and we need new people who want to take the Group forward, perhaps in an informal community group structure.”
Anyone interested in helping take the Group forward can contact Allan direct at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone him on 0141 245 6380.
