KING’S Lynn Town Hall was lit-up in blue and yellow for World Down’s Syndrome Awareness Day on Tuesday.

It was organised by Rebecca Fisher, 22, whose two-year-old brother, Rory Thompson, has Down’s Syndrome.

Together with their parents Jayne and Peter Thompson, they were at the town hall at dusk as the lights were switched on.

Miss Fisher said: “It was a proud moment and I felt a bit emotional seeing it lit-up. The lights just seemed to complement the archeology of the building.”

At Lynn’s College of West Anglia, student Francesca Edgley and her friends wore odd socks in memory of Francesca’s sister Chloe who had Down’s Syndrome and died two years ago, aged 17 months.

Chloe’s grandad Bob Edgley is also holding two Down’s Syndrome Association fundraising days at his business Town and Country in Bergen Way, North Lynn, today (Friday) and tomorrow from 10am to 4pm.

There will be a cake stall, teas and coffees and a raffle with  prizes including electrical goods donated by Mr Edgley’s suppliers.

Anyone spending £5 or more at the event will receive a free Easter egg.
