On the day staff and children were encouraged to wear oddly coloured socks in support of World Down Syndrome Day as well as to make donations. A thank you to all those who donated as we raised a whopping £140 for the charity. Here’s a little message from 21&Co

“I am just so grateful for your £140 donation and all the awareness you raised through the activities and excellent sock decorations on World Down Syndrome Day. I love the photos which I will feature in our 21&Co April newsletter!!

So thank you very much indeed and wishing you all a happy and relaxing Easter break.”
