DSGN will be holding another fundraising stall at Weston Favell on WDSD 21.03.19
There will be a tombola, guess how many sweets in the jar, name the teddy competition, we will also be selling as new toys and handbags all proceeds go to DSGN
WE NEED YOUR HELP – are you able to spare a bit of time to assist on the stall, or maybe you have donations for tombola prizes, as new toys or as new handbags – if you are able to offer any help please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also selling WDSD badges £1 each, they can be worn every year to raise awareness

We are hoping for another successful year of fundraising in order to be able to continue to support our members as we have done in the past. The 2019/2020 will see a Black Tie Ball event in March 2020 to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day which will boost funds for the year.
To continue to support its members in times when fundraising is becoming increasingly difficult, the Group needs, and is always looking for new and innovative ways of raising funds. Therefore ideas and support from members is always welcome and appreciated any member with any ideas or comments please contact a member of the committee who will table it for discussion.
The Trustees and members would like to say a great big thank you for your achievement even when injured to raise funds four our group.
Finished the cycling trip a bit earlier at Weymouth both bikes are about had it and both myself and George Denyer physically shattered. Done 800 miles in total on bike but have to say George done double that with the driving. How he put up with me I’ll never know we had a couple of little words but didn’t have a argument that shows true friendship cause 15 days in a basic motorhome not a ideal holiday eh!! Just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has donated its very much appreciated. With some offline contributions to go in its looking like around £1,500 raised to DSGN.
I would just like to let you all know we have had another amazing cyclist raising money for DSGN ????????
On Thursday 25th July – 27th July 2019 Richard Cheney whose niece is a member of our group cycled just over 300 miles from Daventry to Paris.
He cycled to Portsmouth, stayed overnight got the early ferry to France. Once there cycled all day through France had another overnight stay and he then rode along the Champs Elysees into the Centre of Paris.
So far through just giving he has raised an amazing £1568.90!!!!
Richard we are so very grateful to you.
Our charity only runs on donations and fund raising events so without your support we couldn’t do this, so thanks to everyone who has supported us throughout the year. ????????
