The charity works hard each year to raise awareness and funds for diabetes research, culminating in a star studded event in a top Bournemouth venue at the end of October, including top acts such as Paul Daniels, Steve Brookstein and a wide array of performers from the X Factor and Britain Got Talent. Local celebrities like Anthony Adams from the BBC’s ‘One and Only’ and local big band ‘In The Pink’. The guest list is full of celebs and the event gets coverage by OK magazine.
