We would like to say a huge thank you to Vicky Cole who is pictured here with her little sister Rebecca. Vicky and her fellow students at Ashford College raised a brilliant £52 during a Down’s syndrome awareness fundraiser. This will be split between 21 Together and Kent Wide Down Syndrome Group. Thank you Vicky for your support and well done to all the students!
Here is 21 Together’s first official fundraiser, Helen Tylee. Helen completed a half marathon at Hampton Court and raised an amazing £270.00! Not only must we say a huge thank you to Helen, but we must say a big thank you to everyone who sponsored her and supported 21 Together. Thanks everyone!
