£4million awarded

The Steve Morgan Foundation marked November as Diabetes Awareness Month by making a further charitable pledge of £1million to JDRF to support type 1 diabetes research.

This followed the previous pledge of £3million already made in 2018 towards JDRF’s mission to cure the condition.

Steve and wife Sally, who is a trustee of the Foundation, have had their family life impacted by type 1 diabetes since 2017.

That was when Sally’s son, Hugo, was diagnosed with the condition at the age of just seven. Type 1 diabetes is complex and challenging, requiring insulin to be injected daily, along with multiple daily checks of blood glucose levels.

Through their experience of type 1 diabetes, the Morgan family has committed to making a difference and funding research so that advances towards finding a cure can be made.

The £1m pledge came as Steve and Sally attended the Sugarplum Dinner in London, which took place on World Diabetes Day itself.
