Dorset Diabetes Group Need Your Help

A West Dorset Diabetes group is seeking volunteers to support it's work.

The group, which meets in Dorchester, needs people to help at its evening meetings.

New members are always welcome to come to the group for support.

Volunteers are needed to help out at the meeting and serve refreshments.
