If you want to raise money for JDRF you can take part in various activities that the Type 1 diabetes charity has initiated. It’s Make a Splash virtual swim is something that you can take part wherever you are, from 14 January to 8 April 2019. With four different distances to choose from for your 12-week challenge, it’s easy to take part wherever you are. This sponsored swim is for all ages and abilities. www.jdrf.org.uk/splash
You could also do a sponsored skydive, or do a 100m Spinnaker Tower abseil on 15 June in Portsmouth (limited places). www.jdrf.org.uk/events
If that kind of action isn’t your thing, maybe you can sing, or use your ears and just listen! Sing for a Cure takes place in East Grinstead on 16 March. With music and songs from different genres, there will be something to set every toe tapping. www.jdrf.org.uk/sing
