Dozens of parents of children with 'a little added extra' came together in Norwich to celebrate World Down's Syndrome Day.
City Hall and the Assembly House lit up in yellow and blue to mark the occasion on Thursday, March 21.
Mothers Zoe Lee and Emma Taylor organised a special event at the Assembly House which was attended by families from across the city.
Mrs Taylor said: 'We were thrilled by the support we had, we are so grateful to everyone who came and celebrated that little added extra with us.
'We spent a lovely evening celebrating World Down's Syndrome Day with old friends and we were lucky enough to make some new ones.
