Many local residents turned out for the latest Friday Cafe at St David’s Church in Childwall on Friday 2nd June 2017 to find out more about diabetes.
Organised in association with Diabetes UK, attendees got the chance to find out their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and receive any necessary support to reduce their risk.
They were also offered the opportunity to get involved in their local community, ask any questions they may have and talk to others living with the condition.
The Liverpool Diabetes Partnership were present to offer their expertise and there was lots of information for people to take away with them.
Local Councillor Jeremy Wolfson said: “The whole idea of the Friday Cafe is to create a regular event where people can come along and find out more about issues that may affect them or people they know. It was good to see such a great turnout from the local community and I know they found it useful. I’d like to thank Diabetes UK for their support in putting it on.”
