LET’S CELEBRATE

IT’S THE MONTH OF MARCH; TIME TO RAISE AWARENESS AND FUNDS

During the month of March we celebrate our children and young people who happen to have Down syndrome. The 21st March every year is recognised internationally as a day to raise awareness of the extra chromosone on the 21st pair. People with Trisomy 21 have an extra chromosone, and so 3 chromosones, rather than 2, on the 21st making it a 'tri' rather than a pair.

Our logo features 46 yellow dots with a 47th blue one at the centre; the 47th chromosone.

We have launched a webpage to help promote awareness and raise funds this month.
