Thank you to Darling Downs donors

Diabetes Queensland, the only charity that represents people who live with all types of diabetes, hosted a special event in Toowoomba this week.


Throughout Queensland, we are helped in our work by people who want to do more than join the organisation. Earlier this week we hosted some of the people in the Darling Downs region who dig deep and donate to help Diabetes Queensland deliver the research funds, events and services for people with diabetes.


Over 50 valued supporters joined us for a Donor Morning Tea in Toowoomba's Gip's Restaurant.


Two inspiring Queenslanders also received Kellion awards in recognition of their journey living with type 1 diabetes for 50 or more years.


Jennifer Handley and Albert Schwerin received their Kellions from Toowoomba endocrinologist Dr Sheila Cook, who attended especially to help make the Kellion presentation the formal recognition of resilience that it was designed to be.

We also took the opportunity to present the Rotary Satellite Club of Toowoomba Garden City, represented by President Ed Thomas and Daniel McNamara, with a special certificate of appreciation.


The club held a 10-pin bowling fundraiser last month for Diabetes Queensland and the RSPCA, which raised $1,500 for our work.


Thank you to all who attended the morning tea, thank you to all who help the diabetes community through your support of Diabetes Queensland. We promise to do the best we can with the support you so generously give us.
