Announcing Birdshot Day 2012 DVD

Birdshot Day March 2012

Hot News!  The 2012 Birdshot Day DVDs are now available.  They contain all the talks, all the question and answer sessions and individual interviews with patients and professionals.  Compulsive viewing for those of you who were not able to attend the day, and for those of you who want to relive the day.

We are trying to provide the DVD free of charge, but we do need a donation to cover the cost of production, postage and packing.   To order your copy, please email us at giving us details of where you want it posted.

Donations for the DVD can be made online through our web page on the B My Charity button:

or if you are overseas, via Paypal on our website:

Thank you.

The talks and interviews (but not the hour long question and answer session)  are also available online on You Tube at Birdshot100


Birdshot Day DVD

The Birdshot Day DVD has finally arrived. It contains recordings of all of the days talks, interviews with people with Birdshot, health professionals, charities and low vision specialists who attended.

Today we have written to everyone who came to the day telling them about it and asking if they want to receive copies. We have written to our consultant specialists to see if they want copies, but we also want to hear from you if you would like to receive a copy as well. (subject to availability!)

We have a limited stock, and what we are suggesting is, rather than charge for the DVD, you can make a small donation to help pay for the postage and packaging costs, with anything left over going towards a future Birdshot Day. To do so, please press the donate button on the website.

If you would like a copy, please email us and let us know where you would like the DVD delivered to. Annie and Rea

Short Birdshot Day Movie

Here is the five minute movie which has been made for us by Alan Lacey  (w3media ltd), from some of footage taken on the Birdshot day back in September last year.   We were very luck to get Professor Peng Tee Khaw from Moorfields to be the Narrator for us and we are hoping that it is going to be posted on the NIHR website.     We thought some of you who weren’t able to make it might like to view it to get a taste of what went on.

We are already planning the next occasion and hope to have it early in March next year.    As soon as we have a date and a venue finalise we will be advertising it here.

Next year, we hope that more of you will be able to come and we want to make it even better than the last Birdshot Day.

We understand that the DVD which includes all the talks and interviews  from the day is also nearly completed.   Watch this space!
