This a great total and we are very proud of the children who took part.
World Autism Awareness Week ran from 27th March to 2nd April 2015. As this clashed with our Easter break we held our own Autism Awareness Week from 23rd to 27th March.
Thank you to everyone who donated and/or bought cakes and buns. We raised a massive £240 which has been donated to The National Autistic Society. This donation will help them provide vital support and services for people with autism and their families.
