The Big Collection weekend will take place in Tesco stores on 13, 14 and 15 June 2014 with the aim of raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for Diabetes UK, as part of the major national charity partnership between the two organisations. The partnership aims to make life better for those with the condition or at high risk of developing it.

Diabetes UK is recruiting 4,800 volunteers throughout the UK.

Volunteers can select morning or afternoon sessions running from 9am until 6pm on 13 and 14 June and 10am until 4pm on 15 June.

Sharon Roberts, Diabetes UK Eastern Regional Manager, said:: “We are looking for enthusiastic and approachable volunteers with a desire to help raise lots of money for a fantastic cause.

The weekend takes place at the end of Diabetes Week and it is a great way to inform customers about diabetes while raising money for Diabetes UK. Contact Gemma Pilgrim on 01376 505247, [email protected] or email [email protected]
