We thanked former trustsee Dave McKay for diligently organising conferences (from 2018 to 2021, including the 6th European Aniridia Conference, and more) that were engaging, educational and community-building. These are our flagship offerings and benefit people all around all UK and far beyond too.

Keith Spink

We also thanked Keith Spink for managing and developing the charity’s vital Salesforce database of contacts since 2011. Using his professional know-how Keith has provided the infrastructure enabling us to grow and communicate with everyone interested in aniridia.

Volunteer of the Year Awards

Trustee James Buller announced the people who have stood out recently as worthy of special recognition.

Nikki Hall

We thanked Nikki Hall for wrangling speakers and jointly writing the successful grant application for the 5th European Aniridia Conference. Without her medical expertise and administrative help we would have lacked the money and star speakers to put on such a fantastic event.

Glen Turner

Last but not least we thanked Glen Turner for social media and video production, especially relating to events. Glen posts on our Twitter and Facebook accounts. He also records and edits talks at conferences and other materials, such as for Rare/Aniridia Days. It all massively helps to inform and motivate our followers.
