Dear Stone & Eccleshall Gazette readers,
Diabetes UK is daring people to Dress Diabolical for Halloween, wearing their most terrifying outfits on Friday 30 October to raise much-needed funds. From glorious ghouls to wicked witches, Dress Diabolical is all about having fun by getting sponsored to dress up for work, schools or clubs. There’s even a new iPad up for grabs for the best dressed.
Halloween falls on Saturday 31 October this year, but Dress Diabolical is being held on Friday 30 October so that the fun can be shared at work and in the classroom.
Whether you’re a lone werewolf or an assembled pack of superheroes, Dress Diabolical is the perfect way to have fun while fundraising. And all the money you raise will help us to care for, connect, and campaign alongside even more people living with diabetes as we continue our work to prevent and, one day, cure the condition currently affecting 3.9 million people.
When you’re shopping for costumes, whether you’re making them from scratch at home or rummaging through charity shops for ideas, it’s worth checking what fabrics have been used – synthetic costumes can be flammable.
Sign up now and find more information, including costume ideas and posters, by hopping on your broomstick to dressdiabolical.diabetes.org.uk.
