Last chance to sign up for Walk in the Park

DIABETES UK Northern Ireland’s Walk in the Park fundraiser will take place at Hazelbank Park on Saturday, May 26 at 10am.

The event, organised by the Newtownabbey Voluntary Group, is one of 16 walking events taking place across the province to raise funds for Diabetes UK.

Latest figures indicate that just under 3,000 people in the Newtownabbey Borough Council area are diagnosed with diabetes. And overall in Northern Ireland, there are 73,500 people diagnosed with the condition.

The local Walk in the Park event will be two miles long, so the entire family can take part and the route is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs. Everyone who completes the route will receive a medal.

To register for the walk and receive a sponsorship form, contact Ken Jackson on 028 9029 4967 or email
