A seven-year-old from Clevedon features in a calendar which aims to challenge the outdated perceptions of Down’s syndrome.
Rupert Fox was photographed for the calendar which has been released by the Wouldn’t Change A Thing organisation.
The Wouldn’t Change A Thing hashtag was popularised in March by the viral video of 50 mums with their children singing and signing to Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years.
The campaign was such a success, a non-profit organisation was formed and the group has released further videos to try to change the negative perceptions of Down’s syndrome.
Rupert’s mother Bonny said: “We are extremely proud and excited Rupert is part of such an amazing project, which is so very close to our hearts.”
