Guernsey: Carey Olsen Raises Funds For The Guernsey Branch Of The National Autistic Society
Last Updated: 11 May 2015

Carey Olsen raised more than 3,000 alongside volunteers from the Guernsey branch of the National Autistic Society in a recent Flag Day, to help ensure the continuation of social events this year for families with children with autism.

The family activities are run by volunteers who are on hand to provide advice and information. Each year the charity holds seasonal parties with a range of activities on offer including bouncy castles, arts and crafts, toys and Lego. As well as the larger parties the charity also hopes that the money will enable them to plan sessions such as archery, kayaking and bowling, which families would be able to come and try in small groups.

Events and fundraising manager of the local branch, Jo Horsepool, said: "We are very grateful to the members of the public for their generous donations, which surpassed our hopes for the day, and to Carey Olsen and our volunteers for giving their time. These funds will enable us to continue to put on additional activities for families living with autism and related disorders and provide opportunities for families to meet one another and take part in potentially new experiences within a friendly and supportive environment."
