A four-year-old Weston girl will appear in a calendar to try to change the negative perceptions of Down’s syndrome.
Lucinda Holt, aged four, and her friend Rupert Fox, aged seven, from Clevedon, were selected to appear in a calendar by the Wouldn’t Change A Thing organisation.
The Wouldn’t Change A Thing hashtag was popularised in March 2018 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a non-profit organisation was formed and the group has released further videos to try to change the negative and outdated perceptions of Down’s Syndrome.
Lucinda featured in the videos with her mum Nikki and she has now been picked to represent May in the organisation’s calendar.
