Sad times for our group

Statement from the Down’s Syndrome Association and Swindon Down’s Syndrome Group regarding the death of Stephen and David Thomas (27/10/15)


‘Everyone at The Down’s Syndrome Association and the Swindon Down’s Syndrome Group were deeply saddened to hear the news of the deaths of Stephen and David Thomas.

Stephen was a very talented young man and a gifted photographer. His love of photography started when he was 8 years old. We were all delighted when Stephen’s beautiful image ‘Moraine Lake’ won the national ‘My Perspective’ photographic competition last year.

Stephen’s father David was a huge supporter of the Down’s Syndrome Association and one of the driving forces behind the Swindon Down’s Syndrome Group where he was Clerk to the Trustees.

All of our thoughts and condolences are with the Thomas family at this terrible time.’
Carol Boys, CEO, Down’s Syndrome Association
