Manchester, Saturday 19 May 2012 – put it on your calendar right now. That’s where and when the next big Aniridia Network UK meeting will be. It is your chance to hear from and ask questions in person to:
- people who have aniridia
- parents of children with aniridia
- professionals with expertise relating to aniridia
- the Aniridia Network UK committee
The 2011 meeting was a big success. Newcomer Jane said “The highlight of the day for me was definitely being able to meet other parents of children with aniridia, sharing experiences with those at the same stage and receiving wisdom from those who have already ‘been there’. Also, being able to ask honest and open questions of people who have aniridia themselves and to know that there are so many people out there who would be willing to chat to my daughter and support in her journey.”
The venue this time will be the Manchester Conference Centre: “in the heart of Manchester city centre, just 300 metres from Manchester Piccadilly Station” and close to tram bus and coach stations. It is part of a hotel and others are nearby. We’ll announce more details in the coming months.
This year we are extremely grateful to Heather for volunteering to be the Meeting Coordinator. Having a focused individual like her should make it easier to organise. Plus it allows the trustees time to concentrate on other important issues. But Heather really needs your help. Could you:
- lend a hand with some administration?
- set up a fundraising event for after the meeting?
- be or suggest a speaker?
