Please join us for Silly Sock Day 2011!

Carers and everyone please join us for Silly Sock Day 2011!

On Friday 1st April we are asking for people to wear their brightest, craziest socks to work or school in return for a small donation to Autism Anglia!

World Autism Awareness Day takes place the following day, when people all over the world will unite to raise awareness of autism.

To join in the fun, simply wear your silliest socks on 1st April, donate as little as £1 and help your local autism charity continue providing essential services across the region.

This is Alex. He used to find it difficult going to the shops, because busy places with lots of people would cause him distress.

Autism Anglia’s Family Support team helped Alex by providing his family with advice and practical solutions. As a result, Alex can now cope better with busy places and is able to enjoy going out with his family.

We believe that everyone with autism should be given the opportunities and understanding to make their own valuable contributions to our society.

Please contact us for your FREE fundraising pack by calling 01206 577678 or emailing sillysockday@autism-anglia.org.uk

All we ask is that participants donate a small amount to take part (£1.00 for children, £2.00 for adults). We will provide you with everything you need for your fundraising day, including sponsorship forms, ideas of how to raise extra money and stickers for everyone to show their participation in Silly Sock Day.

On behalf of Alex and the many other people affected by autism, thank you!
