April events announced

We have arranged an exciting month of events for fundraising and awareness during the month of April.

Throughout the month, we are asking offices, workplaces and schools to hold fundraising events to raise money and awareness for Autism Jersey. A simple way to support us is to have dress-down Fridays. Encourage a theme – this year we would love you to wear different shoes. Whether it’s a croc and a stiletto, a Wellington boot and a flip-flop, or just a trainer and a brogue, we hope to see some wonderful combinations.

This will draw attention to sensory issues and how wearing two different shoes can make you feel a bit awkward as you go about your daily life.

Please do send us pictures, and let us know beforehand if you intend to do this, particularly if you would like some publicity in the media. Email Caroline at c.moody@autismjersey.org.

Do come and see us at our flag day and information stand outside Jack Wills on Friday 31 March, from 1 to 3 pm. And during the month each Wednesday lunchtime, from 1 to 2 pm, we will be in the Jersey Library, should you wish to drop by and speak to a member of staff.

Please see the ‘events’ section for more.
