Twelve Days of Giving: Down Syndrome Training & Support Service


Anyone who has been to see Hot Aire! Concert Band (or its junior section, Fresh Aire) may have been lucky enough to watch the amazing Andrew in action.  Andrew is a young man with Down Syndrome who conducts selected pieces with skill and energy.  Andrew’s passion for music shines from his conducting which means that it is a pleasure to play for him. Here is Andrew conducting Choral and Rockout by Ted Huggens.

Today I would like to support Down Syndrome Training & Support Service Ltd, a local charity which is run by and for parents and carers of children with Down Syndrome.  As well as offering support to parents/carers the charity also provides training for professionals and a youth club for young people with Down Syndrome.
