This evening we held an informal get-together in London, after the excellent, free Sight Village event. We met at Caffe Nero, 1 Wrights Lane, Kensington, London, W8 5RY.
People of all types and ages were there, including a retired person with aniridia, a friend of a patient, a guide dog owner, and a parent of a 6 month old baby with aniridia.
Some people were familiar faces from previous meetups in 2016 and 2015, so it was great to catch-up with them. And for others it was their first time, so it was wonderful to get to know them and introduce them to everybody.
We spent a few hours chatting over coffee and hot chocolate, sharing stories, experiences and useful information. It was a lovely evening and the time flew by.
Thank you to everyone for coming.
