Down Syndrome International

We support, represent and raise awareness to help people with Down syndrome.


Thanks you for visiting the Downs Side Up Uncovered JustGiving page.

I am raising money for Down Syndrome International, The Down's Syndrome Association and The Cornwall Down's Syndrome Support Group.

I write an award-winning blog to gently change perceptions of Down's Syndrome from within hearts over at Downs Side Up. I also do public speaking, article writing, training for doctors, teachers and other professionals and our daughter Natty, 6, is a clothing model and ambassador with Down's Syndrome in her own right. 

The Naked Mum asked if I'd like to take part in a project to portray the naked truth behind the mummy bloggers, the real us, women, wives, friends, sisters, daughters all laying our feelings bare in our work.

I thought I'd take the opportunity to match this up with World Down Syndrome Day for which everyone is wearing Lots of Socks in clashing patterns to raise awareness.

So, a friend has been found to do the photographs, and I am currently collecting lots of funky socks to protect my modesty. I will be posing naked next week for a very tasteful, modest Calendar Girls style photo to raise awareness for our cause. I'm nervous, so please donate to make it worthwhile.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
