Taylor Wimpey is proud to donate £250 to Down’s Syndrome Association

Taylor Wimpey South Thames has donated £250 to the Down’s Syndrome Association (DSA); a charity that supports people of all ages with Down’s Syndrome.

The DSA offers a variety of services including a national helpline which receives over 11,000 calls a year and provides information, support and advice to people with Down’s Syndrome as well as their families. The charity runs a national sports programme, DSActive, which offers opportunities for children and adults with Down’s Syndrome to become involved in sport, the award-winning employment programme WorkFit and the Having a Voice project.

The money from Taylor Wimpey will go towards the Down2Earth group which is part of the Having a Voice project. Having a Voice gives people with Down’s syndrome a platform to have their say and be heard. The Down2Earth group meets in Teddington once a month.
