About us

Newton Stewart's most ambitious project Type 1 Diabetes for young people is making great progress towards it's goal

The project aims to provide Insulin Pump Therapy (Type 1 diabetes) for youngsters in Dumfries and Galloway who cannot access pump therapy treatment. It is directed at enhancing child health.  The statistics for Dumfries and Galloway and Scotland indicate that there is a need to be addressed. The majority of youngsters can only access syringe traetment which lacks the control for them to build a normal life. The outcome that we seek will give every child with this condition the ability to resume a normal life, engage with education that will lead to future employment and ultimately lead to future employment and ultimatelu benefit the local economy and health service. 
The project was developed following the Consultant Physician for Diabetes from Dumfries Hospital spoke to the club about the difficulties that many young people face in Dumfries and Galloway with the problems of Type 1 Diabetes. The talk was initiated as everyone seems to know someone with either Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes but not aware of the consequences. We intend to raise £150,000 to provide Insulin Pump Therapy in association with NHS Dumfries and Galloway. Many events over the past 24 months have helped to reach our current total of £17000.

We continue supporting other projects such as the Dumfries and Galloway Blood Bikes at our the Wheelie Good Bike Show on the 6th August which is family orientated so join us for a Party in the Park.
