The Havering Group Diabetes UK, based in North Street, Hornchurch, educates the community about diabetes and helps its national body to fund vital research.
The branch was founded more than 35 years ago.
Chairman Debbie Broom said: “During this time, the aims of the group have been to improve the lives of people who have diabetes and to work towards a future without diabetes.
“We have, with the help of local people over the years, contributed more than £80,000 towards the cost of research within Diabetes UK.”
Diabetes UK is the country’s leading funder of diabetes research.
It works not only to find a cure, but also to uncover how to prevent the condition.
The Havering branch helps both people with diabetes and their families and carers.
Debbie said: “We want to continue this vital work, but we need people to support the group by coming along to the monthly meetings and helping us raise funds so the necessary research can continue.
“We would very much like to see new members joining the group.”
