World Downs Syndrome Day 2016

Leave a comment Standard

You may not be aware but on Monday 21st March 2016, we will be celebrating World Downs Syndrome Day 2016.  This day is recognised by the United Nations and will be celebrating its 11th anniversary this year. The reason that this day in particular is chosen is because people with Downs Syndrome have a triplication of chromosome 21.

Each year people with Downs Syndrome encourage their friends and family to wear different socks to signify that everyone is different, not just those who happen to have a disability.

We will be wearing our craziest socks and encourage you to do the same!
