Support & Advice Alopecia UK Support Groups Yorkshire Children Meeting dates: Date Time Location Saturday 11th May 2019 1.30pm - 3.30pm Saltaire (see below for more details) Please contact the group lead prior to attending a meeting so they can plan accordingly. Extra meeting details: For our meeting on Saturday 11th May 2019, Amy will take children and parents on a short walk around her new hometown - the Victorian model village of Saltaire (Bradford, West Yorkshire). Weather permitting Amy will organise a short walking trail around the village (with the idea to make it interactive and fun for the kids with them perhaps learning something too...don't tell the kids they'll be learning anything on a weekend!). We'll continue our walk down through Roberts Park and onto the Shipley Glen Tramway, a historic funicular tramway which opened in 1895 and is now run by volunteers. There will then be the option to explore Shipley Glen and get an ice cream/cup of tea. You can either take the tramway back down again or there is the option to walk down too. Note: Alopecia UK will cover the cost of the tramway tickets. Further details including meeting points will be provided nearer the time of the meeting. Who can attend: This group is designed for any child or young person and their family living with or affected by alopecia from the ages of 18 and under. Please note that anyone under the age of 17 must be accompanied by someone age 18 or over.

Amy's link with alopecia: Amy first spotted two small patches in October 2007 (age 24). The two small patches quickly re-grew but she then developed alopecia universalis in 2010. Over the last couple of years her hair has started to grow back a bit. Any re-growth is patchy and prone to fall out again. Amy is comfortable with her alopecia these days but would still love for her hair to make a full return.
