Birthday Celebrations in Lockdown

Kerry shares celebrating her son George's birthday during lockdown. See George receiving his fabulous cake in the video below!

"Sid and George live together in their own home with carers. Due to the current situation with coronavirus, I am unable to visit.

Their day to day lives of work placements, college, cinema, pool, family visits etc have been turned upside down, but they have been coping well with the help of their fantastic carers.

We wanted to make sure that we still celebrated George’s birthday so did a special, socially-distanced celebration with the help of friends." - Kerry

Happy Birthday, George!

We know that many families are separated at the moment, which is why it was lovely to see this happy video. If you would like to read more about the important issue of families being apart at this time, Saba Salman has written a piece in The Guardian, about being away from her sister, who has Fragile X Syndrome.
