Message from Bernie Egan of Shine21: Dorset DS Buddy Club:
This Sunday 21st is World Down Syndrome Day. To mark this, some of the children from our local DS support group (Shine21: Dorset DS Buddy Club) are walking 21 miles in 21 days.
Ben and his sister Tess are taking part too and so far are doing very well. Ben has done 16.5 miles and Tess 13.5. Both are very proud thus far and hope to reach 21 on 21st. 21 being the magic chromosome!
Please could you sponsor them, whatever you can afford. A sponsor form has being emailed to school and you can also pay by PayPal and Bacs Transfer too :

Thank you so much for your support and generosity. Sponsorship funds will go to Shine21 a tiny non for profit support group and charity. This helps to bring families together, organises social events and thus promotes long term friendships for young people with Down Syndrome.
