“Molly and Joseph have had an absolutely fantastic time at Downsend + this Summer and I am extremely impressed with the standard of care from all staff and the extremely high quality activities on offer. Both have met new friends and experienced things they would probably never have tried or even know about had they not had the opportunity Downsend + has offered them. What a great Summer for them both – I really can’t commend you and your team highly enough! Thank you.”
