Dad and son appear in video to raise awareness of Down Syndrome
PUBLISHED: 12:00 18 June 2019
A seven-year-old boy and his dad from Clevedon have taken part in a moving video to raise awareness of Down Syndrome to celebrate Father’s Day.
Rupert, who attends Mary Elton Primary School, and his dad Steven were invited to Pinewood Studios in London to film the video with a group of other dads and their children.
The video is part of Wouldn't Change A Thing's national campaign to highlight the beautiful bond between dads and their children born with Down Syndrome.
Rupert's parents Bonny and Steven Fox said: "It was an unbelievable experience and it is truly amazing to be part of a project that will help to change outdated perceptions of Down Syndrome.
"We hope the video demonstrates how our children with Down Syndrome are loved and accepted every bit as much by their dads and that, just like the mums, they 'wouldn't change a thing'."
