Diabetes UK Bristol 2008

Latest meetings details are now on the Bristol Support Group meetings page.

Diabetes UK organised local group meetings for diabetics in Bristol.

I am glad to add any diabetes related event or meeting here or a link to a site with them on. That includes local (in or near Bristol) commercial events. Use the feedback page by e-mail or form to do this.


Due to rising costs, Diabetes UK will be asking for a donation of £1 per person at each event to help cover the cost of hiring the venue, drinks, etc.
