      Who will be there from Alopecia UK?

      Alopecia UK's activity leader for this event is Claire (pictured to the right)

      Hi, I'm Claire and I'm looking forward to meeting you all. I have a 5-year-old daughter, Talia, who lost all her hair a couple of years ago.

      We love being part of the Alopecia UK community and have really enjoyed the meet-ups over the border in Yorkshire. We live in South Manchester and enjoy lots of things but mostly being active and outside. By day I work in research management at the University of Bradford and outside of this I enjoy volunteering for Alopecia UK and supporting my local running club. Mostly though I love my mum duties.

      We are able to run this session for free, thanks to:
