planetfrank - our JDRF fundraising in 2011

We belong to a super community that we hadn't even considered three years ago. From the time of our Frank's Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis 27 months ago we have met many wonderful people - medical experts, parents, and some actual diabetics! And they have helped us beyond measure. We're now in a position to put something back. First, we set up Colchester Circle D, a support group for parents of children with T1D.

And our latest project is to raise some funds in 2011 for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund), the world's top geezers looking at how to better manage diabetes, and seeking a cure..... But we're not just expecting you to just hand over your money, we want to do something that you will want to buy into. So we are putting together a series of events and initiatives for the year, which we will soon outline.

Meanwhile, we have set up a donations page at www.justgiving.com/planetfrank in readiness of our programme, and lo and behold some have donated already. And you will be pleased to know that I will not be following the fashion of posing for a nude calendar, even for charadee.....


  1. LOL Andrew are you sure about that nude calendar???

    As you know I'll be part of the JDRF team soon (still doesn't feel real!) so I am over the moon you are raising money for then :D and intrigued to hear what you've got planned!

  2. Shiv - we had a blue sky/blue circle brainstorming session, and have a dozen wacky ideas already.

  3. Great! I've got a couple I want to do this year as well to mark my 20 years!
