Lochlan's Legacy: What impact can football have on young people with Type 1 Diabetes‪?‬ Amazing Starts Here

    • Society & Culture

Homework, football boots, glucagon kit. For football-mad 14-year-old Lochlan Murdoch between school and training, managing Type 1 Diabetes has been a job 10 years in the making. However, after a devastating injury on the pitch, Lochlan was motivated and inspired to educate those around him on both the physical and mental impact of having diabetes at a young age - and the impact he would have would be well beyond his expectations.
In this episode, Sam Quek meets Lochlan and his mum Lesley to find out about Lochlan's Legacy, a National Lottery funded project about how adults can positively impact young people's mental health and the unexpected impact Kilmarnock FC had in the teenager’s journey.

Listen to discover Lochlan's story and his remarkable legacy.
