Arsenal Whittick, diagnosed with autism aged 49, had never hugged his children until Christmas Day 2014. Now Arsenal wants to share his story and raise awareness of the effects of autism, particularly when left undiagnosed.
Arsenal, a man who seriously struggles with physical contact and proximity, has challenged himself to hug as many people as possible!
Come down and support Arsenal and give him a hug!
Atrium at Bournemouth University Talbot Campus
Thursday 19th April.
Arsenal will have a stand from 9am and will be there most of the day. Please show Arsenal your support by dropping in on him on the 19th or sponsoring him online!
