The dreary days of January were brightened for me recently by a call from the Halifax Giving Extra team. I was told that I'd been nominated by Leo's lovely mummy, Karen, for a Halifax Giving Extra Award and had been chosen as one of 66 local winners from across the country. A photo opportunity was arranged where I was presented with a gift from Halifax, along with a certificate and MEGA rosette!! Of course I couldn't miss the opportunity to make sure that some of our psds drama kids also appeared in the photo - well, they are the real stars after all! But the best bit is that psds is now in with a chance to be awarded a cash donation from Halifax if we are chosen as one of their 7 regional winners - to be announced at the end of February. So watch this space and please keep your fingers crossed for psds....... I am very proud to have been nominated (thank you Karen!), but psds would never have happened if it hadn't been for the amazing Vicky Brackett and Sarah Corbett - two very special ladies that I am so so lucky to call my BFFs! Actually, psds would never have happened if it hadn't been for the three amigos - Thea, Sam and Emily. The original inspiration behind psds and now, along with more than 60 other beautiful children with Down syndrome, the reason it is so rewarding to be part of something so incredibly amazing. To everyone who has helped psds become what it is and to everyone who is part of this wonderful adventure - thank you! Here's to you all and to an exciting year for psds!
