CHEEKY tot Wilson Milss Mcbeth has been showing off his snazzy socks for World Down Syndrome Day today (March 21).

Two-year-old Wilson, from Saundersfoot, is taking part in the Rock Your Socks campaign, as part of a global Down Syndrome awareness day.

People all over the world have been sharing pictures of themselves wearing mismatched socks.

These vibrant pictures of Wilson, who attends Cylch Meithrin at Ysgol Hafan y Mor in Tenby, have also been featured on the Down's Syndrome Association social media pages.

His mum Sara said: "World Down Syndrome Day sees people all around the world celebrate the lives and achievements of people with Down Syndrome, creating a global voice, advocating for the rights, inclusion and wellbeing of people with Down Syndrome."

And why socks?

"Well, because chromosomes look like socks and people with Down's syndrome have an extra chromosome," added Sara.

Down's syndrome is caused by an extra chromosome in cells.

In the majority of cases it can not be inherited, and occurs by chance at the time of conception.
