Irish Autism Action

Well done to all the TY's who gave up their time to help. Great work.

Aoife tells how it's done......

"Last weekend a number of TY's volunteered to help raise money and awareness for Irish Autism Action. Steph had graciously agreed to
co-ordinate the whole event and she was extremely successful. The bag- packing took place over two days with numerous time slots. I went bag packing from 6 to 8 on Friday evening. It was fun and I felt good that we were raising money for such an great cause, however I was slightly stressed at bag- packing as I am very clumsy and was afraid I would break all the eggs in people's bags! But not to worry, it went off without a hitch and by the end of the day I had developed a sufficient system on how to pack a bag best! Overall we raised €1,600 for Irish Autism Action. I was thrilled with the amount raised, hopefully it will go to good use and help alot of people. Why not show your support for Irish Autism Action and like their page the next time you are on facebook! "

All your hard work was very much appreciated by Irish Autism Action girls. €1000 takes one child off the waiting list for diagnosis.
