Mum calls on modelling agencies to recruit more people with Down’s Syndrome

LOUIS KILLICK: Relaxing and having fun in El Tosalet.

ANITA and Jason Killick recently holidayed in Javea. They were there with their four children, Hannah, 15, Nathan, 12, six-year-old Louis and Hayden, who is 14 months old.

Louis is no more special than his sister or brothers except in one respect. He recently took part in a catwalk show in London, his proud parents told the Euro Weekly News. The fact that he has Down’s Syndrome is important only because this prompted Anita to call on more modelling agencies to recruit more disabled children. “That extra chromosome means nothing,” she said.

Anita was put in touch with Models of Diversity agency who are pioneers in introducing a less restricted variety of models to the fashion industry. The agency’s founder Angel Sinclair was captivated by Louis’ mischievous charm and soon chose him for the runway, Anita explained.

“This is our first visit to Javea,” Jason Killick told the Euro Weekly News.  “In the past we have holidayed in Cyprus but when our youngest was born last year we decided it was time for a change.”

With relatives in Javea and Moraira, the Marina Alta was a natural choice for the family.  “We rented a villa near El Tosalet, which is lovely as it gives Louis and his siblings some time to relax and have fun.”
