61 years of living well with diabetes: Pete Davies

I am very proud to call Pete my friend. We met via a mutual acquaintance on Facebook, then shortly afterwards in person at a Diabetes ‘Meet Up’ in a London pub. We soon discovered much shared diabetes history, but also a deep love of classical music and of singing.

I have since joined a choir that Pete has been with for many years, and we now sing together each week and in concerts, share friendship and laughs after rehearsals and we’ve also walked together in the JDRF London Bridges events.

Pete has shared his inspiring story of living with Type 1 with Gavin Griffiths, AKA Diathlete, and I’m delighted to share a link to Gavin’s blog with Pete here to help inspire us all. Thank you for all you do Pete.
