IYF Supporting ….. Foyle Down Syndrome Trust
This Northern Ireland based charity was set up in 1995 by parents to help their children reach their full potential and become more integrated in the local community. An IYF grant has paid for musical instruments and other resources for the children.
Key workers noted: “60% of our families have been empowered to incorporate music into their everyday lives, enriching their cultural, listening and sharing skills, whilst 50% of our children requested a musical instrument as a Christmas present.”
IYF funding for groups like Foyle Down Syndrome Trust mostly depends on the money raised at our Winter Ball @TheDorchester. If you’d like to buy tickets for this year’s Ball on Friday 7th December please click here.
