Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Summer Outings this year! We had great days out at Mead Open Farm, Paradise Wildlife Park, Wicksteed Park, Pony Riding at Stockwood Park, our coach trip to Southend-on-Sea, indoor play at Kids World, and also an evening ten pin bowling for our teenagers and young adults.

Comments from parents:

“This was our first time horse riding and the staff were absolutely fantastic, our daughter got scared as they started to move and dismounted, so they allowed her to stay in the ring and just sit with the horse, can’t wait to do again”

“Fantastic days out, thank you so much!”

“Thank you for organising, we had a lovely day” – Wicksteed Park

“Mead Open Farm and Horse Riding  were both fantastic activities. Our daughter has now discovered a new hobby in
horse riding! Thanks for all the organising that you do. Greatly appreciated!!”


Huge thanks to Karen, Kelly, Carrie, Emma, Derek, Tracey and Teresa, who organised the outings, providing great days out for all our families.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!

It costs the Support Group over £1,000 each year to provide our Summer Outings.  This enables us to pay for each person with Down’s syndrome, have exclusive hire of Kids World and heavily subsidise the cost of the coach fare to Southend. If you would like to make a donation or fundraise for us in any way, please check out our fundraising page. Many thanks!
