What is World Down Syndrome Day?
World Down Syndrome Day is on 21st March. This date – the 21st day of the 3rd month – represents the 3 copies of chromosome 21, which is unique to people with Down syndrome. This year marks the 12th anniversary of World Down Syndrome Day, which is officially recognized by the United Nations.

Gingerbread Sock Biscuit Sale
Once again we have been supported by Roberts Bakery in producing our gingerbread sock biscuits.
We would be delighted if you could hold a biscuit sale and sell some of our delicious gingerbread socks. Each biscuit comes individually wrapped in boxes of 30 biscuits. All we ask is the agreement to sell, no pre-sale purchase is required. All proceeds made from the biscuit sale are to be forwarded to us by cash, BACS or cheque.

Lots of Socks Day
We want to get people talking about World Down Syndrome Day on 21 March! We can do this if we all wear socks… brightly coloured socks, long socks, printed socks, 1 sock… even 3 socks for 3 chromosomes. We are asking you to help raise awareness of Down’s syndrome by encouraging your school, work place or community group to wear lots of socks on the 21st March and donate £1 to CDSSG.
