It’s hard to believe but we are in October already and that means one thing for us – Down Syndrome Awareness Month!
October was first designated as Down Syndrome Awareness Month in the 1980s and has been recognised every year since.
The month is another opportunity to engage the wider community with a simple message – regardless of background, ethnicity, gender or ability, society often overlooks or ignores the obvious fact that behind every human face, is a person. A person who, despite seeing or experiencing the world differently to the rest of us, possess the same feelings, hopes and desires that we all do.
We have a number of exciting activities planned providing fun and active opportunities for all to get involved.
The first of which is a “Bake-a-long”
Inclusion Foundation’s very own Ash Hudson (impact21 Learning Support) is also a professional chef! He has cooked us up our very own Inclusion Foundation cupcake. Everyone can say ‘count me in!’ with this is a recipe that tastes fantastic while being gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free (You could almost say healthy!!).
Decorate them as you please and have fun, share your results with the community, post to your socials using the hashtags #21yourway #CountMeInCupcake.
