Autism Wessex, UK – The Dorset charity wants people to support its Big Brekkie event. This will be in celebration of World Autism Awareness Day on Wednesday April 2.
People are being invited to take part and host a Big Brekkie at home, at work or in the local community during the week of World Autism Awareness Day.
All money raised will support the work of the charity.
Debbie Anderson, Fundraising and Marketing Manager, said that the charity are asking people to provide any type of brekkie that they want in order to raise both money and autism awareness in general.
She further adds:
“Just £17 would pay for a two-hour swimming session for an adult with autism – swimming is a great sensory experience for people with autism, who feel things differently from others. All the funds raised will help us ensure a person affected by autism is set up for life by supporting our objective to increase our residential care homes every year, and we hope more than anything that these properties become lifelong homes for our residents.”
