Being a Down syndrome advocate · Family · Holidays, Days out and Events

What’s happening on March 21st in Norwich will blow your mind!

As you all know I am an advocate for Down Syndrome awareness. Last year I as well as Mum, Dad, Rory and Elsa attended a World Down Syndrome Day event in Norwich in which the City Hall was lit up in support.

So what is World Down Syndrome Day? il_fullxfull.760524470_cmf3.jpg

World Down Syndrome Day falls on 21/3 every year. To signify that people with Down Syndrome have a 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome. Coincidentally the day also is Mum’s birthday (freaky!).

So last year families from all over Norfolk met outside Norwich City Hall on this date. We were also joined by BBC Radio and ITV News. This year will be bigger and better than ever! Not only are we hoping to spread the word of Down Syndrome awareness and have more families join us but Norwich Castle as well as the City Hall will be lit up in the Down Syndrome awareness ribbon colours (blue and yellow).

This event was organised by Emma Taylor. Emma has a gorgeous little boy called Eli, who like Rory has Down Syndrome. He has a brilliant Facebook page so you can keep up with all Eli and his little buddy Mason’s adventures, it is called Best Buddies and their adventures.
