Deeside’s Drum Castle is to host the Aberdeen Walk to Cure Diabetes next month, which raises funds for type one diabetes charity JDRF.

A Dyce mother has spoken out about her son’s type 1 diabetes to raise awareness of the condition and promote Team Jake, named after her son, at the charity event.

The day will have something for all ages and abilities – from the littlest legs to the briskest power-walkers. There will also be refreshments, activities and crafts to keep the whole family entertained. Participants can enjoy either a 5km walk or fun run.

Catriona Morrice, Senior Regional Fundraiser for JDRF said: “The event is going to be a fantastic day out. It’s a great way for friends, family and colleagues to show support for those living with type 1 diabetes.”
