Local Charity Launches New Fundraising Pack

6th November 2015

Autism Plus, a leading charity that supports people with autism has launched a new fundraising pack to help inspire supporters with fundraising ideas, hints and tips.

The pack is available to down from the charity's website, www.autismplus.org and is ideal for first time fundraisers from individuals to businesses that want a way to support the local charity. The charity has been supporting young people and adults with autism, and other disabilities and complex needs for over 25 years. It helps people to improve their quality of life and become more independent. This involves increasing confidence, and learning new skills. Mel Russell, Fundraiser at Autism Plus: -Autism is something that affects 1 in 10 individuals in the UK and their families. A child with autism becomes an adult with autism and will need lifelong support. Funding from the public allows us to enhance the support that we provide and help people with autism to achieve their dreams, whether it's to go on their first ever holiday or to live in their own home. -We hope the fundraising pack will help spark some ideas and encourage people to get creative and start fundraising.
