I am calling on your readers to help a worthy cause and donate their unwanted or broken jewellery to leading health charity Diabetes UK.If anyone has an odd cufflink or a watch that doesn't tick, I urge them to send it to Diabetes UK, which will then convert the old jewellery into crucial funds to support diabetes research projects.As someone who has Type One diabetes, I know firsthand just how serious it is and the devastating complications it can cause - like stroke and heart disease. There are 2.3 million people in the UK with diabetes and more than half a million who have the condition but do not know it.These numbers are rising at an alarming rate so it is important we do all we can to raise awareness of diabetes and help find a cure. You can send any unwanted jewellery to: Old Jewellery Appeal, Diabetes UK, FREEPOST LON12854, London, NW1 2YF.Dominic Littlewood,The One Show Presenter
