Pedal away til May

Some of our team and their families have been pedalling away in their spare time as part of the UK Wide Cycle Ride for Diabetes UK.

James Earnshaw-Crofts, Richard Yardley and Jo Ellis have been cycling various distances from 100 to 950 miles.

Jo Ellis completed the cycle of 950 miles in April 2021 - the equivalent of Land's End to John O'Groats.

Neil Bathgate, father of Jonah, has amazingly completed the challenge of 950 miles in less than a month!

Donations via their charity pages are most welcome.

Past events

World Diabetes Day 2020

World Diabetes Day is marked every year on 14 November, the birthday of Sir Frederick Banting, who co-discovered insulin along with Charles Best in 1922.

It is recognised across the world, by those living with diabetes, their families, friends and healthcare professionals looking after them.

This year's theme is Nurses make a Difference.

We are so lucky to have a team of incredible nurses here in Oxford, and take this opportunity to thank and applaud them for all they do.

Jane, Diana, Emily, Catherine, Jo, Sarah, Jenny, Hannah and Elaine - you make our team great!
