  • Our annual FAMILY FUN DAY at Pontefract Park sees thousands of folks from across our region come together to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day each year – it’s a fantastic community event;

  • Our TRISTARS 21 DANCE sessions at Dance House in Normanton are loads of fun, and working on all sorts of skills at the same time;
  • The PONTEFRACT PIRATES football club is a fantastic club and we’d highly recommend any kids with DS and a love of football get involved.

We’re constantly adding new activities and events, and would love to hear new ideas from group members – so get in touch with Andrea on andrea@downsyndrome-wakefield.co.uk if you have a idea of a new activity for us to look into!
