JDRF, our sponsor today, is the world’s leading type 1
diabetes charity, funding research to cure, treat and prevent
type 1 diabetes and providing information and support for
everyone living with the condition, at all stages from
diagnosis and beyond.

Over 400,000 people in the UK live
with type 1 diabetes, 33,000 of them in Scotland.
JDRF began life in the 1970s, when a group of parents came
together to make a better life for their children with type 1
and it now has offices all over the world – the USA, Canada,
Australia, Israel, the Netherlands and of course the UK.
Since JDRF was founded it has funded over 2 billion poundsworth of research into type 1, funding the best research
wherever it takes place in the world, and is currently
supporting over 400 research projects and 50 clinical trials,
including here in Scotland.

The past three years have proved particularly challenging for
JDRF, with the closure of research labs and an enormous
drop in fundraising income, so please dig deep and support
JDRF here today or you can also make a donation via the
charity’s website There is also information
on the charity in today’s programme and JDRF staff and
volunteers in the concourse.
