The Sugarplum Sweatshirt
Following the diagnosis of her daughter Aliena, with type 1 diabetes at the age of 2, Jubie Wigan set up Sugarplum Children which is a website aimed at offering help, support and advice to children and families living with type 1 diabetes, whilst fundraising for JDRF.
To mark World Diabetes Day on 14 November 2017, Sugarplum Children have launched the Sugarplum Sweatshirt in collaboration with award winning Accessory Designer, Tabitha Simmons and contemporary label, ENLIST. The embroidered sweatshirt features the ‘brave little star’ motif synonymous with Sugarplum Children. It’s available for adults and children with £20 from every sweatshirt sold going direct to JDRF. To find out more and buy yours, visit ENLIST.
