Lorna's link with alopecia: From Lorna:"Since 2011, I have been involved with the Scottish Alopecia Support group, travelling the length and breadth of Scotland to bring people with Alopecia together. My involvement with Alopecia UK goes back a little further than the 2013 Flash mob in Liverpool which I took part in. One of my plans is to get out into the local community and raise awareness of the support that is available. My ultimate desire is that there will never be another person young or old who feels they are alone with Alopecia. A big dream I know, but if I can help a little towards this goal I'll be happy."
