Fancy being in with a chance of winning £25,000 in our weekly lottery for just £1 per entry?

JDRF supporter Leslie signed up to play our lottery and won £1,000! Leslie generously donated half his prize to JDRF. Here, he shares his story:

“My grandson, Zac, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in April 2019, just short of his seventh birthday.

Zac has adjusted brilliantly and takes it all in his stride. He has a Dexcom monitor, which has made life so much easier and is currently waiting for an insulin pump, which we hope will come soon. He can work out his carb intake and inject himself, without fuss.

I’d been contributing to JDRF research, when I took up the suggestion to make a regular contribution via Unity Lottery. I bought four tickets last October and luckily, after just two months, was informed I’d been successful in the draw and had won £1,000!

I gladly donated half to JDRF. Their research to produce new beta cells within the body and to stop the immune system from attacking them is of paramount importance in finding a long term cure. Let’s hope that’s just around the corner.

The remaining part of my win will, hopefully, go towards a family holiday in the sun, just as soon as we’re all safe from this pesky virus.”
