Claire's 50th Birthday Donation PageA fundraising project by Claire Murphy
Instead of buying a present please consider a donation to Sunshine & Smiles, the amazing Leeds based support group for children with Down's Syndrome and their families.
Archie has benefited hugely from the activities offered by Sunshine & Smiles. He especially loves the fortnightly swimming sessions at the beautiful Bramley Baths.
Many families less fortunate than us are dependent on their support. Many children with Downs have additional health problems and all of us have to battle the system to get the support our children need in education.
Sunshine & Smiles is a registered charity that provides a support network in Leeds for children and young people who have Down syndrome and their families. The charity is parent led and is overseen by a team of four trustees. Their aim is to improve the lives and opportunities for children and young people with Down syndrome. They offer speech and language therapy, regular groups and activities, individual support and advocacy for families, as well as raising awareness and challenging preconceptions in the wider community.
