Who is Tegan

The beloved daughter of our vice chairperson, Melanie Jenkins. Tegan was diagnosed with Down Syndrome shortly after birth.

Tegan was a bright and beautiful little girl, she had no health problems and had just started at the local ‘mainstream’ nursery school.  She loved to watch Mr Tumble and enjoyed signing, especially the word for ‘chocolate!’

She loved going to the old Charnwood group, loved butterflies, the colours pink and purple and dressing up.

Sadly, Tegan's life was cut short when she contracted complications from pneumonia, she was sent home from hospital and was found by her dad Geoff lifeless in the morning.
