Youngsters enjoy festive fun at Norwich and District Diabetes Youth Group’s Christmas party

Members of the Norwich and District Diabetes Youth Group have been enjoying lots of festive fun.

On Saturday twenty-two younger members of the group, along with their siblings, parents and carers had fun at their Christmas party and disco at the Gas Social Club, in Roundtree Way, Norwich.

The event was organised by Stephen Pizey, chairman of the group with lots of help from committee members and volunteers.

Norwich North MP Chloe Smith visited the party to donate a raffle prize, talk to parents, and find out about the group.

Later Santa Claus also took time out from his busy schedule to bring every child a Christmas gift.

The Norwich and District Diabetes Youth Group offers support to about 350 young people with type one diabetes from the Norfolk and North Suffolk area. The group also raises funds for local hospitals and organises fun activities for children with diabetes.
