The DSActive National Festival is the teams’ flagship event every year. Last year, over 150 people with Down’s syndrome played in the festival for their respective teams and the event is always a special day for the players, parents and coaches. It is a showcase of all the hard work the teams have been putting in throughout the year. It is also a chance to welcome the newest players into the community built around the DSActive sessions happening all across England and Wales.
Legal & General’s CSR Executive Nicky Mihalop commented “Legal & General are delighted to support the DSA’s innovative programme DSActive by providing a grant for this year’s DSActive National Festival. Not only will the tournament give the participants of the DSActive sessions a valuable opportunity to take part in a tournament but it will also enable the staff of Legal & General’s Birmingham office to show their support for the Down’s Syndrome Association, as they will be volunteering at the exciting event.”
The DSActive team would like to say a huge thank you to Legal & General for sponsoring the event. DSActive Project Manager Alex said “We are really excited to have Legal & General sponsoring the DSActive National Festival 2018. Without their support we wouldn’t be able to run the festival this year so it is fantastic they have agreed to sponsor it and we look forward to working with them.”
