Volunteers needed

Past activities have only been possible by the very generous donations we have received and fundraising events people have supported.  Most recently we had donations from people taking part in half marathons and a13 mile family bike ride around Lake Vyrnwy. 

We need to continuously raise money if we are to maintain our aims of organising events during 2016 and ongoing.  This is where we need your help please! Here are some of the ideas put forward to raise funds for our Group, and we would like to hear from anyone who would be prepared to support us with any of these tasks:

  1. Table-top sale

  2. Bag packing and / or display table  – Tesco is a corporate supporter of Diabetes UK, so this could possibly be held at the Shrewsbury store

  3. Donations in lieu of retirement / birthday / anniversary presents

  4. Donations in memory of a loved one, in lieu of flowers / wreaths

  5. Donation of sponsorship money raised

  6. Walk in the park

  7. Fun run (e.g. 5km - The Quarry, Shrewsbury)

Please let us know if we can add your name to a list of volunteers we could contact who might be able to help us, stating your preferred choice of fundraising.  Or if you have some other fantastic ideas to help us raise money, we would love to hear from you.

For ideas on fundraising:


You may be interested in taking part in events to raise money for Diabetes UK. If you would like to, you can also donate money you raise to this group. Anyone sponsoring you, or any advertising material, should make clear that donations will go to Shrewsbury Kids Group and not Diabetes UK.  This has been agreed with Diabetes UK. Monies raised for our Group should be sent to:
