Williams Syndrome Williams Syndrome Website

It is non-hereditary and causes distinctive facial characteristics and a wide range of learning difficulties. Infants often have delayed development and can develop physical and mental health problems, including anxiety and depression in later life. WS people tend to be talkative and excessively friendly towards adults.
We will support this Charity in 2019 17 – 19th May to encourage people to ‘share your heart with friends’
The Oliver King Foundation
Through working in partnership with schools across Strand Network, we are raising money for the Oliver King Foundation, who aims to provide defibrillators within the local community.
Oliver Passed away suddenly in March 2011, aged 12, from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS). Oliver’s parents have set up the Oliver King Foundation to help raise awareness of the condition as it can be controlled and monitored if detected. The money raised by the school will contribute to the purchase of defibrillators to be placed in local sports centres and shopping centres etc. and to assist in providing staff with relevant training.
