Our Teen activity day returned for 2023 and any concerns about the weather, and if we would get on the water, quickly disappeared as the rain held off and the sun came out.
65 teenagers over 3 venues across the country, supported by diabetes nurses, volunteers and Diabetes Ireland staff ensured a fantastic day was had by all. With all the teens doing a series of land and water-based activities, archery, football, wall climbing, Boda Borg, kayaking, surfboarding and good old pier jumping, everyone made lots of new friends making it a great day for all.
A huge thank you to the Hospital Saturday Fund and to the parents who fundraise for Diabetes Ireland which allowed us to hold this event.
Finally, a big thank you to our nurses, Deirdre, Gillian, Yvonne, Laura, Avril, Rosie, Marie, Christine, and Debbie. It goes without saying that without you, we could not have this event and the teenagers would miss out. Roll on 2024…
