Funky Pumpers Limited is a small company specialising in manufacturing and selling Insulin Pump bags. All our bags are UK designed and made and are suitable for all commonly used Insulin Pumps in the UK such as Medtronic, Animas, Cozmo and Roche. Pouches can also be used to carry CGM and PDA devices, as well as medical devices for other conditions.
Please contact us with the dimensions of your device if you are unsure of sizing.
We understand the need for diabetic children to be able to lead as active lives as possible and have designed our pump bags with this in mind.
Meet our team
Sabrina Dawe – Director
Funky Pumpers Ltd was founded in January 2011 by Sabrina Dawe.
In 2008, Sabrina’s 13 month old son became seriously ill with DKA (Diabetic Ketoacidosis). He was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and spent a week in hospital recovering. He was initially treated with Multiple Daily Injections, but at the age of 17 months old was placed on an Insulin Pump. Sabrina found that caring for an active toddler wearing a pump was certainly a challenge but found the pump bag to be an essential accessory for the pumping pre-schooler!
Unfortunately pump bags were fairly difficult to find in the UK and Sabrina and many of her friends in the diabetic community had to look further afield to the United States, to purchase them.
Sabrina was the first person in the UK to set up a company specialising in insulin pump pouches as she wanted to give UK customers the choice of buying in the UK rather than abroad.
Sabrina is an avid supporter of JDRF and has completed the London Marathon in support of the charity. She has also volunteered for INPUT, has given many talks on insulin pump therapy to hospitals and parents and is part of the Children with Diabetes advocacy group. Sabrina has also been part of Diabetes UK user involvement groups and has advised her local PCT on insulin pump therapy issues.
