  • World Down Syndrome Day 2023

    Published 21/03/23

    21 March is World Down Syndrome Day – and that date’s no coincidence. It was chosen because it’s the 21st day of the third month, relating to the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down Syndrome.

    The theme this year is With Us Not for Us. That’s something that Rebecca, 23, believes passionately.

    Rebecca is a third-year student at Aurora Foxes in Minehead – a specialist college and training hotel for young people with learning disabilities. She’s studying for a level 1 NVQ in Hospitality Services.
