An event was held to say thank you to all supporters of the community garden. Sean, who is supported by mirus in Maesteg, and also volunteers in the garden, was there to represent mirus.
Our fantastic walking group wore their brightest colours, and Autism Acceptance tees for a stroll around the park to raise awareness and money for the National Autistic Society (NAS). After their walk, they headed for lunch at the Victoria Park pub where they continued to represent the cause by wearing their NAS t-shirts and displaying banners.
Together, the walking group raised a whopping £673 for the National Autistic Society. The money raised will help transform our society into one that truly works for autistic people.
A significant amount of the donations were thanks to the incredible fundraising efforts of Thomas (pictured right), who was awarded a National Autistic Society medal and certificate for his contribution.
In true walking group style, the fundraisers got together in the park to celebrate their achievement and to present the medal and certificate to Thomas. Thomas wore a wonderful suit, complete with Autism Acceptance tie to mark the occasion.
