Practice ‘kicks off’ for World Down Syndrome Day Celebration!!



Pontefract Pirates Juniors’ “ Footballer of the week”  is Ruben Reuter!

A brilliant session this morning as Pontefract Pirate Juniors prepare for The Family Fun Day at Nostell Priory next Saturday to celebrate World Down Syndrome Awareness Day – watch them play and join in as they demonstrate their footie skills throughout the afternoon event.

The fun at Nostell kicks off at 1pm and won’t end until the final whistle at 4pm.


There will be lots of brilliant entertainment as well as Ruben and the other Junior Pirates showing off their skills there will be a mascot race, cheerleading display, face painting, bun decorating, walkabout theatre from Shabang! Theatre Adventures, a bouncy castle, land train, dog displays fairground games and a fire engine! As well as information stands on local Down Syndrome Support Groups – Wakefield & District who are hosting the event and our very own Huddersfield.

      All this is completely FREE so why not bring along the whole family!
