A four-year-old who has down syndrome is to become a poster boy for a charity event at Tesco in Stalham this week.

Louise Lemmon said her son Finley, who goes to Catfield Primary School, is well-known by store staff and will be featured on posters to mark World Down Syndrome Day on Thursday (March 21).

She said the store will be hosting a collection on the day.
