The Tara’s Palace Trust continues in it’s mission to support deserving children’s charities in Ireland.
Due to the generosity of our visitors to the Museum of Childhood and the wonderful volunteers who welcome our visitors every day, the Tara’s Palace Trust is delighted to donate €2,000 to The Down Syndrome Centre which is located in Sandyford, Dublin 18.
The Down Syndrome Centre was founded by Peter Gaw and his wife, Mary as a result of their frustration at not being able to access relevant services for their two youngest children, both of whom have Down syndrome.
The charity has been around for a few years and, in October 2014 were finally able to open the doors to Ireland’s first (and only) services-led centre for children with Down syndrome and their families.
