The Paralympics may be big news at the moment, but this dog is chasing his tail with excitement over the snappily named East of England Paediatric Diabetic Games.
Diabetes specialist nurse, professional pancreas (she has Type 1 too) and general girl wonder Claire Pesterfield brought together 200 children with diabetes from 17 hospitals for their own version of the Olympics. And she did it just days after spending the weekend supporting the UK team at the Junior Cup. This woman is one toy short of a dog basket, which is a good thing, because otherwise this stuff wouldn’t happen.
The ITN news report shows that even pouring rain couldn’t stop play. Congratulations to all the kids involved, and to the organisers, you’ll sleep like I do after a long walk now this is over.
