At least one AF Trustee is planning to attend the YPA event and other AF representatives will be attending the parallel European Day of Albinism event at the same venue, so will provide assistance if at all possible, but this cannot be guaranteed.Attendees must therefore be willing and able to travel independently to Oslo and the venue.
We returned to the Kinning Park Complex in Glasgow on Sunday 28th May for the Scotland Albinism Event.
Over 30 people joined us for the afternoon, including both families and adults with albinism.
Successful applicants will be contacted by Friday 3rd November and will need to pay the registration fee of 45 by Paypal by Friday 10th November, If payment is not received by this date, the place will be reallocated.
This fee is non-refundable unless the event is cancelled.
Travel to/from the airport in the UK/Ireland will be at your own expense.
Thanks to everyone who made our Adult & Family Weekend Conference in Derbyshire such a success.
The official language for all activities will be English, so knowledge of Norwegian is not required.
However if you do want to practice another European language, there will almost certainly be someone there who speaks it!
One of our supporters, Bhavit Shah, has decided to raise awareness by doing a sponsored walk for the Albinism Fellowship on 13th June from his place of work in Canary Wharf, London to his home in Harrow (some 18 miles!
) He is going to be accompanied by his colleague Vikas Dagar and their employers are considering matching whatever they raise.
Albinism Fellowship is looking for 3 representatives to attend the next pan-European Young People with Albinism (YPA) event, which will take place from Wednesday 7th to Sunday 11h March 2018 in Oslo, Norway.
