Your funds could help children like Laura
"When Laura was born with Down’s syndrome, we didn’t know what to expect. Luckily our doctor told us about the support available through Mencap, and Laura got a place for a year.
Our first day at the Mencap centre was very emotional. We were proud parents just like any whose child is going to school for the first time. We walked in through the doors, at that stage Laura still wasn’t walking - so we carried her in our arms.
As we passed Laura over to Donna, her keyworker, she said to me, “Don’t worry - Laura will walk out of here at the end of term.” And of course, she did.
Laura has achieved so much by coming to Mencap, and it's a huge relief to know that Mencap will offer Laura so much more in her future. We know we will always be part of the Mencap family.”
- Gráinne, Laura’s mum
