Hawksmoor was delighted to be able to help support the Lions Clubs of Cornwall once again in their efforts to increase awareness of diabetes and the importance of early detection by screening.
The Lions Clubs of Cornwall were at this year’s Royal Cornwall Show with a stall which was set up to invite visitors to the show to have their blood sugar levels checked by qualified nurses.
Barry Merrifield of St Austell said, “We undertook over 1,400 screenings in all and around 10% of tests showed readings which were higher than what might be considered normal. We also had people who had been picked up from previous years coming back to the stand to say that they sought their GP’s advice after last year’s check and are now knowingly diabetic and being controlled.”
