Auction will buy insulin pump
‘‘We think it is a fantastic support for them and to give a child a pump.’’ Diabetes Youth Matamata is not just for children but also families or adults.
‘‘Having adults around is good for the younger kids to have role models and see how they can still grow up in a normal society and have a normal life – just with a condition to consider.’’ Following the fundraising auction, entertainment will be provided.
Mrs Richardson encourages people to come along and bring their friends.
‘‘It will be heaps of fun and a great night out,’’ she said.
Pump it: This small device – an insulin pump – can improve a diabetic child’s way of life.
