JAKE GLENNON, 16
Medallist Jake Glennon is the youngest ‘Makaton Friendly’ DJ in the country. Inspired by his cousin Alice, who has Down’s syndrome, Jake learnt Makaton, a sign and symbol language, and developed a way to integrate it into his performances. He has opened a new fun world for many Makaton users who previously would have been on the sidelines at party events. He was given his award by Adrian Carter from Big Bus London.
