Feb 2008 Newsletter
Dear Supporter

When we launched The Stephanie Marks Diabetes Appeal in 2003, we did not foresee some of the obstacles which have truly challenged us. We are however thrilled to embark upon 2008 as our final push year, and plans are almost in place to see building works approved later this year on the St Peter’s Site. Being allocated an existing site rather than building from scratch, has also lowered our target, and therefore upon reaching £800k will allow us to commence work. We will keep you updated of progress as we work hard to secure the final £150k. More details can also be viewed by visiting .

We hope there is something for everyone included within this newsletter, allowing for your continued support. Please do share the secrets of those family favourite recipes and have them included in a special recipe book. Or for the runners amongst us, secure your place now for the British 10k.

We are truly grateful for everyone’s hard work and indeed support, and do hope to see many of you at this year’s Living with Diabetes Day.
