From 26th December until 26th January we will be working as a team to walk 500 miles around Yorkshire in order to raise much needed funds for this beloved charity. Our team is made up of people who work for the charity, volunteers, parents, children and local businesses so we really are making it a community event.
This is possibly the worst time of the year to do a walk like this but we have chosen to do so because it is also such a powerful time of the year. January is when most people feel alone, depressed, the rates of domestic abuse rises and the amount of children being taken into care peaks significantly. Parents who have children with additional needs make up a high part of those statistics. We hope to raise money so that those who are most affected can get quick and life changing support from the team at Autism Angels.
