Kellion Victory Medal Scheme
Celebrating life, lifestyle and the individual! The Kellion Award program runs throughout the year and acknowledges those of us who have diabetes and have lived with the disease for 50 years or more.
The 50-year medal is silver, the 60-year medal is gold, and a 70-year award usually takes the form of an inscribed silver salver. The award also includes a certificate.
In addition to the Kellion Victory Medals Scheme there is the Kellion Carer’s Award - which acknowledges diabetes affecting the whole family. The carer plays a major role in assisting a person with diabetes to live a full and satisfying lifestyle. The Kellion Carer’s Award recognises many years of caring love, dedication and support.
