Our Drop in Groups for adults with autism in Bournemouth and Dorchester held special breakfast events last week in support of our Big Brekkie campaign. Those that came along also shared their thoughts and experiences of having autism and being supported by our services, to celebrate our 50th Birthday.
We have an even bigger reason to celebrate our annual Big Brekkie campaign! Every April, we ask supporters to host a fundraising breakfast to highlight World Autism Awareness Day and this year it's also our 50th birthday!
