Lots of Socks 2024

Thank you for joining thousands of supporters across Ireland in celebrating World Down Syndrome Day.

You wore colourful socks, you baked, you raised funds, you walked miles and came together to end the stereotypes for those with Down syndrome in Ireland and celebrating their achievements in the fields of employment, education, self-advocacy and beyond.

Every euro you have raised will go towards the development of life-changing ‘all-through life’ support in the areas of speech and language, early development, and adult education that enhance the lives of thousands of children and adults with Down syndrome across the country. This is all made possible because of people like you!
