The Millwall Community Trust DS Lions is a new and growing community team for youngsters in south London with Down's Syndrome.
Centred at Millwall, the group trains regularly at the ground and is a perfect way for youngsters with Down's Syndrome to have fun, build friendships and gain really meaningful experiences from participating in sport.
DS Lions has already taken part in two football tournaments this year - at Fulham's Motspur Park training ground and at their first ever national tournament in Birmingham, where they took on the likes of Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and Arsenal.
The boys and girls loved their days out and have developed a real hunger for competitive events. Millwall Community Trust wants to help take this further and develop two teams - one Junior team for Under 16s and one Senior team for those 17 and over.
On Thursday 28th September, MCT will host their first ever gala evening to support the DS Lions and will be raising funds for them to purchase kit and attend tournaments around the country.
The event will take place at The Den from 7-11pm and tickets will cost £20 each. The evening will include a buffet, disco, raffle and auction - with a special auction for one of the younger DS Lions, Ciara, aged 6, who is currently battling leukaemia.
Come along and support the group and have a fun evening for a really deserving group of youngsters! Your donations will really make a difference.
