A six year old boy who is a Type 1 diabetic has raised £300 for Diabetes Isle of Man. 

Little legend Cameron Mackie, who was diagnosed last May, raised the money, with a little help from his parents, by organising a Christmas lights switch on, selling homemade baubles and organising a guess the weight of the cake at a Christmas event at his school, Laxey Primary School. 


His mum Melissa said: ‘Cameron is such a lovely kind hearted boy and deals with his diabetes very well’

Melissa also praised the teachers of Laxey school, which she said have been ‘amazing and have supported the family and Cameron throughout’.

Natasha Parry, from Diabetes Isle of Man, said: ‘Cameron’s fundraising for our charity has been nothing short of amazing! A diagnosis of type 1 diabetes doesn’t just affect the individual with the condition, but the whole family. Cameron and his family have raised awareness of Diabetes Isle of Man and the condition itself, which really is so important, and so appreciated! We are very grateful for the support.’

For Cameron’s family, the fundraising won’t stop there, Cameron’s sister Caitlin has set her sights on hopefully walking to Peel on the Parish Walk this year for Diabetes IOM.
