2. A ‘cook along’ session for children and teens.
3. A discussion session for adults with Albinism.
Roselle Potts, Chair of the Albinism Fellowship, said: “ During the past difficult year of Covid-19 and lockdowns we have used technology to enable people with Albinism and their families to continue to connect, share and celebrate. We hope that lots of our community will join in on 13 June”
