Mums and their children with Down’s Syndrome release video signing ‘Three Lions’ for the world cup

Section: Toddler

A group of mum's and their little ones with Down's Syndrome have released a karaoke-style video of them signing their support for the England football team and it's the most heartwarming thing you see today. 

The stunning video shows families signing along to the popular anthem 'Three Lions' in Makaton, which is a simplified form of British Sign Language.

The video was produced by the 'Wouldn’t Change A Thing’ community and has already racked up over 12k views. 

Claire Constable, who is part of the group and features in the video with her son Ben, told ITV News: “Our message throughout is #wouldntchangeathing and we are working together to change existing perceptions of the condition and help others to feel better informed of aspects of Down’s Syndrome that may not be apparent initially. “We had a prenatal diagnosis with Ben and it would’ve helped us greatly to have been exposed to such material as we started our journey into parenthood with Ben.”

The touching clip has even been praised by comedian and song co-writer David Baddiel.

He tweeted: "I have to be honest. This is the first version straightforwardly to make me cry."

Not only is the video showing support for the England squad, it's also raising awareness around Down's Syndrome and for that we are HUGE fans. Get sharing, everyone!
