Your donation will enable us to run our weekly speech and language, occupational therapy, life skills and educational play sessions and other activities for children and young people with Down syndrome.
There are so many ways you could help us raise much needed funds. Here are just a few ideas to get you started:
Get your school involved in raising funds for DEx – maybe as their chosen charity, or encouraging them to hold an Odd Socks Day, with donations to DEx
Choose DEx as your charity when you shop through AmazonSmile or Easyfundraising
Host a Zoom quiz, with donations to DEx
Can you run a mile (or more!) for DEx?
Set up a birthday fundraiser on Facebook with Downright Excellent as your chosen charity
Nominate DEx as your company’s chosen charity
Send e-cards that give to DEx by donating the cost of greetings cards and postage at https://www.dontsendmeacard.com/ecards/charities/downright-excellent-dex. It’s really easy to do and it’s better for the environment too!
Get creative, maybe following the lead of Barry, a DEx parent and artist who created a set of artworks in aid of DEx. Or Jen, a DEx grandparent who sold beautiful handmade scarves, raising £250 for us
Help us find a friendly printing organisation that will donate the 2022 DEx calendar by not charging printing costs
