A Downright Perfect Christmas Party

Every year we host a Christmas Party which is open to our members, their siblings and close family.

With entertainment, festive activities, crafts, snacks and a visit from Santa we provide an inclusive opportunity for our families to have some Christmas fun.

World Down's Syndrome Day

21st March (being the 21st day of the 3rd month which represents the 3 copies of the 21st chromosome which causes Down's Syndrome) we come together as a community to celebrate World Down's Syndrome Day.

In 2023, along with Shine21, we welcomed 150 people at our World Down's Syndrome Day Party and our 2024 event is sure to be even bigger.
