Win a festive chocolate treat this Christmas

17th December 2015

It is the season of giving and goodwill and local charity Autism Plus is helping supporters get into the Christmas spirit with a special festive giveaway.

The charity that supports people with autism and other complex needs across the north of England, is offering the chance to win a box of luxury handmade chocolates, or take part in a chocolate workshop with each donation made. The draw is open to anyone that makes a donation via the charity's JustGiving page, up to 21st December. The handmade chocolates come straight from the charity's independent chocolate factory part of their social enterprise, Ampleforth Plus situated on the edge of the Ampleforth valley in the heart of North Yorkshire. Mel Russell, Fundraiser for Autism Plus said -We decided to do a Christmas giveaway as a way to thank supporters for their generous donations throughout the year and particularly over the Christmas period. The chocolates are of the highest quality and have been made with the support of individuals with autism and other complex needs. It's a great way to support a local cause and have the chance to treat you or loved ones to some lovely treats at the same time. Autism Plus provides a range of innovative and person centred services that enable individuals to improve their confidence, develop skills and be as independent as possible. Last year 343 people were supported by Autism Plus across the Yorkshire region. For the chance to win make a donation at
