Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Elliot's Shed will contain free, specialist equipment to borrow, such as tricycles, chairs, buggies and sensory toys, which are crucial for children with Down's Syndrome's daily lives. 

The Shed was donated to Down's Syndrome Oxford by Kat and Seth Cornfield, whose two-year-old son, who had Down's Syndrome, passed away in 2015 following a long battle with cancer. Kat Cornfield says, "DSO is our local charity that continues to support Elliot's many friends. It helped Elliot make the most of what he could do -- which was everything and anything! -- and supported us when we could have felt isolated and alone." 

Sarah Fonge, from DSO, whose six-year-old son Artur has Down's Syndrome , says, "I was there when the idea was born and saw the light in Kat's eyes at the prospect of a project in Elliot's memory. Its aim is to remove yet another piece of paperwork for a family and hopefully to enable our members to access resources. With Elliot's Shed, a family can try before they buy.
