Number 10 lights up blue for World Diabetes Day!

Posted on November 14th, 2012 in Local News

Keith was on hand when one of Britain’s most popular soap stars Nina Wadia from EastEnders flicked the switch to light up 10 Downing Street blue to mark World Diabetes Day 2012.

It follows the Prime Minister’s historic decision, at the request of the diabetes charity Silver Star, to allow Downing Street to be bathed in blue light to help raise awareness about this potentially life-threatening condition. Diabetes currently affects an estimated 3.7 million people in the UK and 300 million worldwide.

The lights, in the colour of the iconic blue circle used to signify diabetes, were turned on by Nina, Silver Star Ambassador, at 5.30am on the 14th November.
