Educational Support Day – Manchester 9th November 2011

Here are the details of a local meeting that Adrian Brooks is organising in Manchester.  We thought that some of our Birdshot members might like to go along and meet up with others in the area.  Adrian’s meeting is intended for glaucoma sufferers, so parts of it may not appear to be totally relevant to you at this moment, but some of the issues that may concern many members will be covered. It all depends on where you are with your Birdshot  journey.

Please do get in touch with Adrian to let him know if you would like to attend because he will need to have some idea about how many people will be coming.

Thank you so much Adrian for extending this invitation to our members.
