Foundation Celebrates World Down’s Syndrome Day

Today marks the 10th anniversary of World Down Syndrome Day and each year the voice of people with Down syndrome, and those who live and work with them, grows louder.

To celebrate the occasion, the Foundation have invited Arsenal Foundation’s DS Active group up for a fixture of their own against the official Magpies’ DS team ahead of today’s game.

Playing at Newcastle United’s First Team training ground, the two teams will challenge each other before travelling to St James’ Park as part of their match day experience. Both teams will be sitting down for their post- game lunch before watching the Magpies take on the Gunners.

Luke Howard, Disability Officer from Arsenal said:

”We are so excited to both play in the NUFC 1st team centre and watch the big game at St James Park for the first time.”

Reggie Dornan, project coordinator for the Foundation also commented:

”This is a great opportunity for our DS group to get a competitive game against a team of similar ability.

“They train every Tuesday night at Walker Activity Dome, and they can now show their skills off in an actual game”.
