Found 23rd Mar 2017
Diabetes is the single largest drain on the NHS. With fair weather just round the corner, snap up a great deal on a short sleeve cycling jersey and support a major diabetes charity at the same time. Was £34.99 - now only £1.

Sizes still available:

xSmall

Small - now out of stock

Medium - now out of stock

XXLarge - now out of stock

Plenty of other items available in their £1 sale (https://shop.diabetes.org.uk/store/branded-goods/%C2%A31-sale) but this seems to be the best value.

Postage - £3

    £1 for type 1. I can support that one.
    I'd love to wear this as the cafe stuffing my face with brownies.
    Don't want to put a downer on a good cause, but where exactly is the money going? -into the pockets of the managers?
    The only research that comes to fruition is from and private companies/facilities funding themselves. Diabetes UK as far as I know only raise awareness.

    Was £34.00.99



    Great to see £sd return! So the original price was 34 pounds 8 shillings and 3 pence? Bargain at only 8 shillings and 4 pence plus postage
    Brilliant. Great cause. Ordered

    Sweet deal!
    Wobble into Costa wearing this and pour 15 sugars into your Espresso and see the looks you get !

    It's only £1! I don't think that's really going to line anyone's pockets. Even £1 to raise awareness of the NHS's biggest cost (10% of all NHS budget is spent treating diabetes) is surely a good cause?

    Wake up, awareness is wasted on the majority of people, until such time you are in that situation.

    heat added, bought couple of them!
    As there are no large, I've gone for a medium - that's an incentive to lose weight before I get the bike out again!
    hmmmm, not sure I like the phrase drain on the NHS, it implies this disease is needlessly wasting a lot of money. Personally I would say the NHS is keeping most diabetics alive when otherwise they would die in a year or two from their illness, whilst elsewhere transgender ops, boob jobs and designer vaginas are the real drain
    Thanks Mintyman. Bought 2 cycling vests, 2 t shirts and a set of measuring spoons for me, a t shirt for my dad and mirror for my mum. Total £10 delivered. Voted hot.

    Have to say though, I have lived with type 1 diabetes for 20 years and have been quite lucky with my health. I have lost friends to diabetes complications, another friend now totally blind, and another lost his foot a few months ago and looks like he will be losing his leg now. I feel bad that we are a drain on the NHS, it isn't our choice, or indeed our intention.

    When you pay you can specify the money should go towards research if you want to.

    To be fair it could say "I'm a ****" on the front and would still be a deal for £1. Bottom of the barrel jerseys are usually at least £10.

    I got a couple of cycling jerseys and running vests and the total was £7. For workout wear that's pretty stonking value.

    Maybe you're the one who needs to wake up? Nobodys milking you for their £1 cycling jerseys.
    ta op! love the fold up water bottle ideal for the car/shopping/travel bag etc!!
    The vest is perfect for for the beach. All I need now is a collection tin. Ideas?
    also kids puppy pens £1.39 was £1.99 nice to add to order!

    old quality street tin........:p
    Good spot, a couple of tech tee's for sports ordered, a cycling top, various other things. £10 spend. Bargain.
    Type One diabetes is an auto immune condition that sufferers have no control over getting and cannot be cured from. 10% of diabetes sufferers have type one and it is chronic and incurable, they are insulin dependent and would die within days without it.

    Type two diabetes is mainly preventable and can be reveresed through diet and exercise.

    Please stop say 'diabetes' and lumping the two conditions together. They have similar symptoms but very different causes. People with type one diabetes are not a drain on the NHS, they are very ill people who need life saving medication and treatment.
    just bought a couple of cycling shirts a couple of running vests and tee shirts, all at £1 each, and postage was per order not per item. £8 all in. heat added. thanks OP!
    Thanks, ordered £10 worth of stuff.
    Thanks ordered various bits but the t-shirts are a bargain!

    I never said Type 1 is a drain. I simply meant 'drain' in the sense that the NHS is splitting at the seams, and hemorrhaging money. 10% of all NHS budget is spent on treating diabetes related complications so anything that can be done to raise awareness of the condition can only be a good thing.

    Apologies. I simply mean that the condition leads to the single biggest cost in the NHS. I didn't mean to imply that people with diabetes are a drain on resources and money. I have updated my comment to 'cost'.

    I would very much agree that type 2 diabetes is a drain on the nhs!
    It is far more common than type 1 and pretty much completely preventable. It is very much associated with obesity and and over indulgence which in itself is classed as a huge drain on the nhs.
    You wouldn't argue that smoking related illness was not a drain.
    If you knowingly or willingly cause a preventable illness and then expect others to foot the bill, then that my friend is a 'drain' on resources.
    Put the cake down and go for a walk!
