“Sarah is driven, with a very clear vision of what she wants to achieve, but always has time for others. I’m so glad she is doing so well, and for me it was never in doubt, as she is a star!”
Michel Roux Jr

Sarah, Andy and their family will be with us to celebrate the launch of the book, World Down Syndrome Day…and to sign copies, of course!
