About Down's Syndrome : Charlie

My name is Charlie and am 14 years old.

I would like to tell you about my work experience in my local shop in Cornwall.

I help with serving people and using the till and price food too. My favourite thing is that when I’m finished I get a Lion bar.

I love my drama group Act1 it’s called, I have great fun and love acting.

I like to go on my tandem with Mum and Dad and my sister, sometimes our dog Angel runs alongside.

I would like to be a lolly pop man for a job and I love cake.

Kind Regards
