Support local children’s charity to raise funds and awareness about Down syndrome

Next week is Down Syndrome Awareness Week (21st – 27th March).  Portsmouth City Council is a long standing supporter of local children’s charity Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association and each year the charity runs a Social Media Awareness Campaign, which is supported by the local community and over 70 top celebrities to date.

For each new charity page ‘like’ and page ‘follow’ on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn, Warner Goodman solicitors will generously donate £1 to the charity.  In addition, this year they will also donate £1 for each post like / comment / share.  Please click on the charity’s social media links below for details.

You can support the campaign by liking, sharing, retweeting and commenting throughout the week using the tags @PortsmouthDSA #PortsmouthDSA #WDSD2022   

Your support will make a very big difference and last year, with community support, the charity managed to reach a global audience.

Their hugely successful ‘Rock Your Socks’ Campaign encourages people to wear bright socks to raise awareness and celebrate diversity and inclusion.

Get involved by taking a clear photo of yourself or your pets rocking your socks and post on social media (or email to rachaerlross@portsmouthdsa.org) and please tag them @PortsmouthDSA #RaisingAwareness #InclusionMatters  #RockYourSocks #DownSyndrome. Let your imaginations run riot – there will be prizes for the best animal / comedy and general photos!

Join Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association by getting behind this year’s awareness theme: #InclusionMeans…when individuals with Down syndrome are included and given the opportunity to participate, the whole community benefits.
