On Monday the time had finally arrived for our long awaited campfire (in honor of National Down Syndrome Day) to take place and it was a soaring success. Lots of friends and some talented musicians gathered round on the wooden pallets around our self built authentic campfire. Where we were treated to some live entertainment which we all joined in on, singing many songs around the campfire. Whilst enjoying some talented performances we also put a twist on the traditional campfire snack of marshmallows and tested out toasting ourselves some s’mores! Consisting of marshmallow, a square of chocolate all sandwiched between a biscuit base and it is fair to say it was a successful new take on tradition! We also were treated to cakes and popcorn all to be enjoyed in a rustic yet luxurious environment with friends. All working as a team each of us contributed to the evening by putting wood in the fire, toasting our s’mores and singing together. The perfect way to enjoy an outdoor evening. Although our intention of the evening was to have a great time with friends our main purpose of the event was to celebrate and contribute to National Down Syndrome Day. Through an enjoyable and successful evening we managed to we contribute to the cause of National Down Syndrome Day and raise thirty-four pounds! Thanks to all who took part on a wonderful evening to recognise and raise awareness of National Down Syndrome Day!
