Thank you Diabetes Community for your support!

The Irish Diabetes Community has been so supportive of this event and we are truly appreciative and thankful for it.

I had lots of queries about Thrive-abetes after last week's post and lots of excitement around the confirmation of Helena Farrell as our third speaker.

So, in an effort to address further queries and make information easier to find I have rearranged some of this blogs pages. Namely on the right hand side of the page a list of pages, including Conference Speakers and a draft of our conference programme.

We are still working on finding our perfect venue with one more to view. But myself & Rebecca are extremely eager to get this item put to bed.

We also have a raffle planned to raise our funding shortfall of €2,500 with a SIGNED 2014 Six Nations Ireland rugby shirt on offer, which was very generously donated by Davina Lyon and John O'Reilly from Diabetes T1 Ireland. Plus, two weekends away to give away kindly donated by Maura Tierney from Friar's Lodge Guest House in Kinsale, Co. Cork (I could actually use one of those right now;-)

Once our raffle license arrives we will announce details on how you can buy raffle tickets and we will also be asking for volunteer ticket sellers. Five hundred tickets seems like a big number but many hands should make light work of it!
