Latest News from T1 Together


T1-Together’s mission is to raise funds for the diabetic community of South Africa and our vision is to assist the disadvantaged diabetic youth and financially assist with the training of diabetic alert dogs.

Our first major project is to produce a recipe book and we had thought to have this book out by 14 November this year i.e. World Diabetes Day.

Needless to say, with such an audacious goal, that deadline was just too tight so we’ve pushed out the launch of our recipe book to next year – and in the process, the book ideas are just getting bigger and better!

In the interim, we do need to keep funds rolling in for T1-Together and we are doing this by selling a variety of items at Boot Sales and Markets.  We are extremely grateful to Mabu Vinyl who have come onboard as a sponsor by donating vintage vinyls for us to sell and you’ll find us at the Bothasig Library Boot Sale most Saturdays.

Car Boot Sale

All packed and ready to go!

We also often receive donated books and CD’s and along with a supply of interesting bric-a-brac, these items are all sold for the benefit of T1-Together’s recipe book project.  Please see list of events below and support where you can.

In December, we are honoured to be at the Table Bay Christmas Market, which is from 2nd December to 22nd December.  Our stand will offer 100% raw honey, both Fynbos and Wild Flower, as well as honey spoons and honey gift packs.
