My name is Brian and I'm a retired maths teacher with a wide range of interests around music, theatre and travel. I started noticing my beard was becoming patchy in late 2019, and over the period of three months I lost all of my hair. I am still coming to terms with my alopecia and thought I'd use my experience to set up a Plymouth support group. If you have any feedback on this support group please consider leaving it here. Alternatively, if you have any Suggestions, Comments, Compliments or Complaints for the charity please do so here.
