World Down Syndrome Day at Mires Beck
Down Syndrome is a condition when a child is born with an extra copy of a chromosome, which causes them to have mental and physical development delays and disabilities.
People with Down Syndrome will have some degree of learning disability, and some will be more independent than others (such as getting a job)
At Mires Beck Nursery, we have contributed to the #LotsOfSocks campaign by wearing odd, funny, bright and colourful socks.
We greatly miss our service users, some of which have Down Syndrome. It is as if they are the missing chromosome of our nursery. So to show how much we miss them, we have put lots of colourful windmills in a new garden we are planting for this summer and a bright and multi-coloured bunting at the sales hut.
To show your support, you can wear brightly coloured, mis-matched socks, taking pictures and videos, and post them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtags #WorldDownSyndromeDay and #LotsOfSocks.
