EXCITING NEWS!

Our Group has been chosen to be Charity of the Year by two separate organisations – SAINSBURYS in Oxney Road and The Peterborough High School. This is fabulous news and once again, will bring many opportunities for us to raise awareness about Downs Syndrome and also to raise money for our group. We are working closely with both organisations and will keep you posted about forthcoming events.

Our first organised event with Sainsburys is a ‘Bag Pack’ at the Oxney Road Store on Saturday 15th November between 10am and 2pm. Obviously, the more people we have helping out, the more money we will raise for our group so please do consider helping, even if you can only manage a half an hour.

This session aimed at under the 5s continues to take place once a month at Happy Faces in Glinton, Peterborough. Children have the opportunity to play, sing and sign. The next sessions are from 10 – 11.30am on the following Saturdays – 18th October, 8th November and 13th December.
