The purpose of the day was to provide an educational session for parents and their children on sport and type 1 diabetes.

Ollie sat on a panel of sportsmen and sportswomen (all with type 1 diabetes). He gave a brief presentation / account of himself and his journey thus far (as did the rest of the panel) and then fielded questions. There were about 100 participants on the day and because of his closeness to their children’s age ended up being asked a good number of questions from the parents who were really interested to hear from him. After the panel he lead a cricket session with the children in attendance and the Glamorgan coaching staff.
