Type 1 Tea Party for Research….Massive Success

The annual Type 1 Tea Party for Research took place on 21st April. We had a great response from people all over Ireland with lots of tea parties being held in homes, offices, schools and community centres.


This year we also held tea parties in Diabetes Ireland’s HQ in Santry and Diabetes Ireland’s Care Centre in Cork. The events went really well and were attended by local members, businesses and friends of Diabetes Ireland.


Below is a snapshot of some of the tea parties that were organised. Thank you to everyone involved. If you organised a tea party and have photos and stories to share please email them to Jennifer at [email protected].
