Birmingham-based LTS Global Solutions have launched an artic trailer showcasing children and young people with Down syndrome. This is a follow-up of the successful launch of their three 18 tonne vehicles in support of the Down syndrome initiative, Positive About Down Syndrome (PADS) earlier in the year.
PADS is an initiative by the national charity DSUK that combats the negativity and fear associated with Down syndrome. LTS hope to help this by showcasing lovely images of affected children which emphasises their individuality and ability to partake in everyday activities, not simply the condition.
PADS Charity Trustee Nicola Enoch said that: “PADS is extremely grateful to LTS Global Solutions for the opportunity to challenge perceptions people may hold around Down syndrome, by showing children and young people with Down syndrome leading full and rewarding lives.”
LTS Managing Director Dave Hands, whose daughter Ella features on the trailer added, “With our three previous vehicles being so well received by our employees, people within the Down syndrome community and the general public, we wanted to expand on that and what better way to do it than showcasing the wonderful work that they do and raising awareness on a bigger vehicle."
