We have been approached by Catherine Butler, a journalist writing for Country Living Magazine, who is looking for people with Down's syndrome to be nominated as young community heroes. People who have had a positive impact on their village/ rural area. The nominees must be based in a rural part of the UK, be aged under 30 and be people who have worked to strengthen community, revitalised a local resource (eg kept the village store/ post office open), or worked to preserve an important part of that area's natural or cultural heritage. If you are interested in nominating a person with Down's syndrome, please send details to cate@catherinebutler.co.uk by 4pm on the 26th May. Thanks, the DSA Team ... See MoreSee Less
