We organise many trips throughout the year, to work towards our fun and friendship objective – having fun together gives so many benefits for our families, and our adventures also provide valuable learning experiences for our children and their siblings.

Places we have visited recently include Cannon Hall Farm, Eureka and Lightwater Valley, as well as local soft play centres and swimming pools. We hold an annual Christmas party for our families, and a Christmas night out just for parents to let their hair down.

We vary the activities to try to appeal to as many families as possible, and are always open to suggestions of new places to visit – just let Ann-marie know via asheard@downsyndrome-wakefield.co.uk.
