James Billingham receiving his 60 year medal

On 29 October 2013, James Billingham was presented with the Robert Lawrence Medal by Dr Charles Fox at a meeting of the Northampton Area Group.

The Robert Lawrence medal is named after Dr Lawrence, one of the first people in the UK to receive insulin when he was diagnosed in the 1920s, and a founding member of the British Diabetic Association, now Diabetes UK. Each year, the medal is awarded to someone who has lived with diabetes for 60 years.
