Donation to local hospital funds diabetes course

Marshall-Tufflex have donated £2736 to the Conquest Hospital in Hastings to cover the administration and development costs of a course to help people in East Sussex adjust to living with Type 1 diabetes. The SADIE (Skills for Adjusting Diet and Insulin in East Sussex) course, which is run by East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust’s diabetes team is sponsored by Marshall-Tufflex for the seventh year.

SADIE offers participants an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills to confidently self-manage their diabetes with no food limitations or restrictions on their daily activities. The course runs for five days over a five week period, with four courses held each year, two in Bexhill and two in Eastbourne.

“We are very grateful to Marshall-Tufflex for their continued support.  Evidence from data collected from those who have participated in SADIE shows a reduction in their long-term blood glucose levels, an improvement in quality of life and stability in weight. The SADIE course has been running since 2004 benefiting people with Type 1 diabetes in East Sussex.”

Jon Chamberlain, Managing Director

“Marshall-Tufflex is very proud to be able to support the SADIE programme. The course arms people with diabetes with invaluable skills and information to adjust to life with diabetes. We’re delighted to be sponsoring this local programme for the seventh year running.”
