On the 19th August 2017 we kicked off our third family meet-up and first organised weekend event, with a family day at the Cricket Green School. A big thank you to headteacher Mrs. Celia Dawson and everyone at Cricket Green School for the use of such a lovely school and grounds. The hard work and planning that our event organisers Stephanie Barnes and Barry McGiir had put in, with the help of their team of volunteers, was evident the second we walked through the door. The decorations were a homage to Zellweger UK with green and purple giving everyone a warm and cheerful welcome.

On the 19th September 2015, our UK families got together for their very first ZSD family meet up, kindly organised and hosted by Michelle Thompson. Our families spent the day at Synergy at Calthorpe Academy in Birmingham, which was kindly donated for free by Andy. Not only did families get the chance to connect, but we had speakers from around the UK.
