Down’s syndrome, also known as Down syndrome or trisomy 21, is a genetic condition that can cause varying levels of learning disability and other physical characteristics. Although there's no ‘cure’ for Down's syndrome, there's lots of support available to help children with the condition lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
Our very own Will Richardson explains how the team got involved:
People could get involved with the day by wearing the official socks, sported by our brilliant team, or simply popping on any odd pair the fancy and donating to this incredibly worthy cause. All money raised went to the Down’s Syndrome Association, a brilliant organisation who’ve been working hard for 45 years to improve knowledge and understanding about people with Down’s syndrome, provide information and support for people with Down’s syndrome and champion the rights of people with Down’s syndrome to help ensure they have the support opportunities they need to live lives of their own choosing.
We were delighted to get involved, be part of the day and support the DSA’s wonderful work. Here’s to next year!
