King's Lynn Town Hall to light up for World Down Syndrome day to raise awareness




Rebecca Fisher, 25, an online influencer from West Norfolk is arranging for the Lynn town hall to light up on 21 March for World Down Syndrome day.

Sadly, due to lockdown restrictions last year, no one was able to attend the awareness event, so Rebecca is now planning to live stream it online.

Rebecca was inspired to do something for World Down Syndrome day as her brother Rory has the condition.

Rebecca said: "Rory inspires me everyday to raise awareness and show the real side of Down Syndrome.

"There are so many stereotypes when it comes to Down Syndrome and people have an image in their heads and it isn't like that at all. Rory is just like everyone else.

"World Down Syndrome Day means a lot to myself and my family, it is about getting people together either in person or online and celebrating Down Syndrome.

"In 2020, the Town Hall lit up but no one was able to visit and 2021 is going to be different too.

"We want everyone to be safe so I am going to be going live on Facebook via The Coastal Mummy page to show everyone the Town Hall in all its glory."

The hall will light up yellow and blue, the Down Syndrome colours at 5pm.

World Down Syndrome Day is always on the 21/3 as people with Down Syndrome have 3 copies of the 21st chromosome, so the day has special significance.
