Rachael Ross rocks civic award!

Our fabulous Chair, Rachael Ross, was awarded a prestigious Portsmouth Civic Award yesterday in recognition of her outstanding contribution to education, Down syndrome, charity work and fundraising for the past 25 years.  During some of this time, Rachael served as a Trustee for Down Syndrome Education International for over 5 years before co-founding Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association, where she has worked passionately leading the charity as a full-time volunteer for nearly ten years, improving education and social opportunities for our children, as well as driving all our fundraising initiatives.  The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth said, “Rachael is a truly inspirational individual, making an outstanding contribution to society, and demonstrating her commitment to the city of Portsmouth for over 2 decades.  Through her tireless work and dedication, she has successfully raised the profile of education and Down syndrome in the local community and far beyond.”  Huge congratulations from all of us Rachael.  Your award is very well deserved!
