Dragon Boat Racing

Raising funds for 21 Together

An annual dragon boat challenge is staged by the KM Charity Team to help charitable groups with their fundraising.

Teams of 11 compete with one of the crew beating a drum to dictate the pace of the paddles. They take part in a minimum of three races but the fastest teams compete in the finals at the end of the day. You may have up to 17 rowers in your squad, so fill all 17 spaces to raise more money and everyone will have at least 2 races on the day.

It is a challenge for those who wish to savour the ancient traditions of the dragon boat, as much as for those who want to test their strength and rowing technique by travelling across the 250m course in the fastest time. It is also a day for spectators as well as for people taking part.

Toilet Training

Continence and Toilet Training Specifically for Children with Down’s Syndrome

Date: Friday 5th April 2019, Provider: ERIC – The Children’s Bowel and Bladder Charity www.eric.org.uk

Overview and Purpose

This course is designed to discuss toilet training for children with Down’s syndrome. It will start by discussing healthy bowels and bladders; their function, control and issues – then dive into toilet training, specifically related to Down’s syndrome and associated issues. It is important to assess the readiness for potty training, get prepared and then get going! We will look at obstacles to toilet training, using assessment flowcharts and developing an individual toilet training programme. The course will end with case studies where parents can bring their own problems and the trainer will help with solutions.

By the end of the course you should be familiar with the normal acquisition of bowel and bladder control, be clear about what assessment/investigations are appropriate and have an increased confidence in toilet training and continence management.
