About Down's Syndrome : Gary

Gary_Valeting2_LMy name is Gary. I live near Gateshead.

I like to keep busy. I go to college three days a week to learn gardening. I play football and go to the gym in my free time.

I really want to work because it gives me a chance to help people. My whole family work hard and they inspire me.

I would prefer a job where I am active and busy rather than sitting at a desk.

Gary_Valeting1_LIn these pictures I am on a work placement at a garage cleaning cars, inside and out.

I loved working outside, even when it was cold and really enjoyed the work.
