Wembley lights up for diabetes awareness

Posted on 16 November 2016  - 01:40

There was a special moment for our legendary former captain Gary Mabbutt at Wembley earlier this week as the famous arch was illuminated blue as part of Brent Council’s support of World Diabetes Day.


Mabbsy has long been a campaigner for diabetes awareness having broken down a number of barriers and perceptions by playing throughout his illustrious career with the condition.

It was a proud moment as the venue of his finest achievement as a player - lifting the 1991 FA Cup as skipper - amplified his support of this important cause.

The Club is supporting Brent Council on its healthy living initiatives as Wembley plays hosts to our European matches this season.
