World Down's syndrome Day 2023

To celebrate World Down's syndrome Day 2023, the Foundation hosted their annual FE vs DS football match at The Nest

The fixture, which has become somewhat of an annual tradition, saw players from our various Football and Education programmes band together to face our Down’s syndrome football team in a friendly match.

Whilst the only real competitiveness resided between the two coaches, Stevie Bramble and Darren Hunter, the game gave both sides an opportunity to embrace and socialise with those from different backgrounds in a fun and safe environment familiar to them all.

Great goals were scored and even better celebrations were displayed throughout the morning.

Disability Development Manager, Darren, commented on the occasion in the video below:
