child story


Calum is 21 years old and has Fragile X syndrome

He doesn’t have a favourite colour, but he likes his shirts to be black

He likes most animals

He likes walking with his friends in The Adventure Service across Derbyshire Dales. He loves singing, art and dance and all the fabulous clubs and groups available for people like him

Silly things make him laugh

His family’s proudest moments are when he is brave enough to learn new skills and go off and have new experiences. He abseiled off a 30ft bridge, went canoeing, sang on stage and when he went off on holiday. Always learning and enjoying life.

"Calum has lovely manners and nature. He cares and is thoughtful and remembers people. I wish I had more of his skills and kindness." (Written by his mother).
