We had our 2020AGM. We had a good turn out (on Zoom of course), and a lot of good ideas were discussed. Sad news: Birgir Gislason, our Peyronie's patient trustee, is standing down as he is moving abroad soon. We shall miss him, but wish him all the best and are grateful for the support he has given the charity and those struggling with Peyronie's. The Dupuytren Conference will be held as virtual meeting in 2021, sad as there will not be any inpromptu discussions with people in the corridors, but the best decision considering present circumstances. We are still hoping there will be a strong charity representation. Finances: Amazon Smile is a steady source of income for our charity, not a big source at the moment but the more people start using Smile and setting our charity as their preference, the better it will be! Please all do so. (just regsiter at Smile.Amazon.co.uk and shop as normal. Our webinars and videos are a big success, we are thinking about producing some more. They can be found on our YouTube channel: bit.ly/31gieUA We discussed articles the charity can produce to inform people of what Dupuytrens and related conditions are and what we do. We have done a few surveys in the last 6 months, and may well do more. These will help if we do a presentation at the 2021 conference.
