Silver Star Diabetics Registered Charity

Post by sallypelt on 05.09.16 13:59

There are quite a few references, in today's newspapers, about The Silver Star Diabetics Charity. I have taken a brief look at what this charity does, and from my findings, it appears that there are four mobile testing units. Is this all the Charity does? There is no need for mobile testing units to discover if one has diabetes or not. Lloyds Pharmacy, for example, does a free testing service. All one has to do is go in and ask for a test, and they will do it there and then.


A brief of what this Charity does:


Silver Star is a registered charity campaigning to provide diabetes awareness. The Charity runs Mobile Diabetes Units, which main role is to carry out important diabetes testing and to promote culturally sensitive healthcare in the major towns and cities of Britain.

The mind boggles!!!

I think the clue is in the "culturally sensitive healthcare" aspect.


Looking at Wiki - it seems to be centred on the Asian community.

Questions have now been raised over the friendship between the committee’s chair, Mr Vaz and Champneys’ owner Mr Purdew.

The MP attended his wedding in 2009, where other guests included former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks.
Mr Purdew is also godfather to one of Mr Vaz’s children, who is the Leicester East MP.
The politician also recently allowed Mr Purdew’s 19-year-old son to undertake ten days of work experience in his office.
Mr Vaz and Mr Purdew are understood to have been friends for more than 25-years and there is no suggestion of any wrongdoing. “

Dorothy Purdew is Stephen Purdew's mum, and she  is a patron of the Silver Star Diabetics Charity
