Down’s Syndrome Association
“It was great to work with Damon Hill and his wife Georgie, raising money for such a worthwhile cause. I believe it is important to support and enable Down’s Syndrome children to thrive and excel.” Michael Caines MBE
The Down’s Syndrome Association (DSA) is the only charity in the UK dealing with all aspects of Down’s syndrome. Its aim is to help people who have Down’s syndrome live full and rewarding lives.
Since 1970, they have grown from being a local parent support group into a national charity with over 20,000 members, a national office in Teddington, Middlesex and an office in Northern Ireland. Despite this, the organisation is run by a total staff of just over 40 (many of them part-time). They also work closely with local support groups throughout the UK.
Down’s Syndrome Association was the charity of the month in March and April 2019, Lympstone Manor raised £1,633. Adding to the £17,000 raised for the charity to date.
