Diabetes UK is calling for people across Greater Manchester to sign up to the first ever ‘FakeAway Feb’ challenge this year, to help raise vital funds for diabetes research.
The challenge involves swapping processed foods for healthier, home cooked meals throughout February, with support, advice and recipes along the way.
By signing up you will commit to a month of ditching the takeaways, and enter a leaderboard where you can track your progress against others.
Clare Howarth, Head of the North of England at Diabetes UK, said: “FakeAway Feb is a fantastic opportunity to discover new recipes, connect with our community, and save some pennies – all while raising money for vital diabetes research.
“If you’re living in Greater Manchester, sign up to FakeAway Feb today, and kickstart your journey to a healthier you.”
You will be welcomed into an online community of tips, tricks and cooking hacks to help you towards your goals, along with access to a free meal planner.
Those who raise more than £35 by the end of February will even receive their very own Diabetes UK wooden spoon.
FakeAway Feb is here to ensure a healthier you, and is a great way to encourage the whole family to choose healthier options.
Diabetes is the most devastating and fastest growing health crisis of our time, affecting more people in the UK than any other serious health condition.
The condition can lead to devastating complications such as sight loss, lower limb amputation, kidney failure and strokes.
There is currently no known cure for any type of diabetes, but with the right treatment, knowledge and support people living with diabetes can have a happy and healthy life.
Funds raised by the challenge will go towards research to help Diabetes UK achieve its aim of creating a world where diabetes can do no harm.
