Tipperary Down Syndrome Coffee Morning

Down syndrome Ireland (Tipperary Branch,) are hosting a coffee morning in Hayes Hotel, Thurles, next Saturday September 29th, from 9.30am until 11.00am.

All funds will go direct to the Tipperary Branch of Down Syndrome Ireland.

Down syndrome Ireland Tipperary branch is run on a voluntary basis by parents and families of children/adults with Down Syndrome. They offer a wide & varied range of services, including Parentlink, a group of parents who have received training to be the first point of contact to new parents and their families. They also employ a senior Speech and Language therapist, Susanna Stokes, two days a week to work with Tipperary members. Susanna gives a home programme for parents to follow at home.

The group also provide worthwhile Music Therapy & Kindergym for all younger members and a valued Therapeutic Fitness Instructor, who works with those affected,  who are over the age of six year old. In May 2012 they commenced their Adult Literacy (Latch – on) Project, in conjunction with Down syndrome Limerick, which is a two year literacy project for adults with Down syndrome.

Fundraising, like this coffee morning on Saturday 29th September at Hayes Hotel and other fundraising events throughout the year held by members, their families and friends, make it possible for the Tipperary branch to subsidies these very vital services for these Down Syndrome affected children and adults. Please also remember that all funds raised here in Co Tipperary stays totally within the Tipperary branch network.

So please, please, please do make the effort to support this worthy cause and note your calendar; its all happening on Saturday September 29th, next from 9.30am until 11.00am.
