On Tuesday 11 June participants on our Love to Dance programme made their way to Brent Cross Shopping Centre to support an all-day awareness-raising event to mark Diabetes UK’s Diabetes Week.

The event was run by Barnet Council and looked to educate people about diabetes and also offering free diabetes tests to passing shoppers all day. Of the 85 tested, the results suggested that eight had diabetes and a further 20 were at increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

While people were being tested our Love to Dancers performed a dance to just show dance is for everyone and to encourage those taking the test to join in and come along to one of our classes. They were also joined on the dancefloor by the Mayor of Barnet!
