Happy 90thbirthday Jean

At our September Diabetes Wellness meeting, held in the Caritas Service Centre, we celebrated the 90th birthday of Jean Cawood.

She regularly attends our monthly meetings even during the cold winter months. Jean brought the most delicious diabetes-friendly homemade muffins for us to enjoy with our coffee and tea after the meeting.

Candice Kemp from Virgin Active was our guest speaker and Jean participated in all the weird and wonderful exercises that Candice demonstrated. Jean is currently in England visiting some of her family.

Jump for diabetes 

Our second annual Jump for Diabetes was held, on Sunday 28 October 2018, at the Gravity Indoor Trampoline Park, Port Elizabeth.

Paula Thom, convener of the DSA Young Guns, hosted this fun-filled afternoon with Kureshin Reddy, owner of Gravity Indoor Trampoline Park.

While the youngsters enjoyed jumping, they also helped raise awareness of diabetes and some much-needed funds.
