National Autistic Society
The National Autistic Society is the UK's leading charity for people affected by Autism. Over half a million people in the UK have autism. Together with their families they make up over two million people whose lives are touched by autism every single day. Despite this, autism is still relatively unknown and misunderstood. Which means that many of these two million people get nothing like the level of help, support and understanding they need. Together, we are going to change this.
Only 0 days to go!

Many thanks for visiting my page.

This April I am running in the London Marathon in aid of the National Autistic Society.

This is my chosen charity because Ally’s brother and nephew both suffer from Asperger Syndrome and consequently her family have been deeply affected by it.

The National Autistic Society is the UK’s leading charity for people affected by Autism and Asperger Syndrome. Almost 700,000 people in the UK have autism, and together with their families they number over 2.7 million people whose lives are touched by autism every single day. Many of these people get nothing like the level of help, support and understanding they need.

Asperger syndrome, a form of Autism, is a lifelong disability that affects how a person makes sense of the world, how they process information and relate to other people. Asperger Syndrome is mostly a 'hidden disability' - you can't tell that someone has the condition from their outward appearance. People with the condition have difficulties in communication, interacting with others, and understanding the nuances of non-verbal communication and facial expression. This can make it very difficult to develop normal relationships, hold down a job and other aspects of life that most of us take completely for granted.

Thank you for your support.
