PSDS was proud to be shortlisted for Charity of the Year - an accolade won deservingly by The Children’s Trust, Tadworth - at the event last Thursday (26th March). But it was the presentation of the event’s premier award, Local Hero, to Jenny Ward - who supports PSDS by devoting much of her time to running weekly development groups for children with Down syndrome – that really made PSDS’s night
We are thrilled that Jenny has been recognised as a Local Hero,” says Helen Shiers from Dorking, co-founder and trustee of PSDS. “To all the families involved in PSDS, Jenny is certainly seen as a hero for her tireless and selfless work running DIGBIES (our weekly development groups). The services that PSDS provides, in which Jenny plays such an important part, are really helping to make a difference to the lives of our youngsters with Down syndrome – their future looks very bright and we are excited about all that they might achieve. So much of that is down to Jenny!
