News – Tea for 21
The branch held a Tea for 21 party on 20th March to celebrate Down’s Syndrome Awareness Week and also to launch our branch. The event was well attended and raised £125. We received some fantastic support from our local community as well including the ‘Dancing for Fun’ group in Castle Douglas who have donated towards our groups and actvities going forward. Thank you to everyone involved.
We will be running a POP-UP shop in Dalbeattie which will be open from 19th – 21st of July. Any ideas of what to sell or offers of help would be very welcome. Please start saving any toys, books or clothes that you might be willing to donate and we will gather these nearer the time. We are also looking for volunteers to help man the shop, if you think you can help out for an hour or two we would love to hear from you.
