Matamata Chronicle - - News -

‘‘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.
