AEC ARE DELIGHTED TO BE SUPPORTING BUDDY’S FOR CHILDREN WITH AUTISM

AEC are proud to give back to the community and each year our staff choose a charity in which to raise money for. The charity committee develop a programme of events and set a fundraising target which AEC match £1 for £1 at the end of the year.

For 2019, AEC are delighted to be raising money for Buddy’s Children with Autism.

About Buddy’s

Buddy’s are a local charity based in Bury, Manchester whose aim is to inspire hope and contribute to the health and wellbeing of children and adults with Autism; by providing the best support through friendship and education

Autism is a lifelong, developmental condition that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people, and how they experience the world around them. 

Approximately 700,000 people in the UK experience Autism that is 1% of the population. Buddy's provides a full range of activities and support services that encompass the whole family such as a charity shop, sensory changing rooms, safe spaces, daily living skills and support groups. 

In 2018, Buddy’s purchased a caravan in Lancashire to provide young people and their families much needed respite care. In order for the caravan to be fit for purpose and a place to be enjoyed, it needs to be installed with safety and disability access, customized sensory equipment, a sensory garden and disability aids. 

AEC would like to raise £2,000 this year through a variety of fundraising events and activites such as:

  •  - 26 Week cook off - baking & cooking challenge between 26 bakers competing for the challenge of star cook! 
  •  - Jim McKeon, our project manager will be taking part in an open water 5KM swim around Cholmondeley Castle, Cheshire on 22 June.
  • -  We're hosting a calendar competition for children under 16, to help us create our annual calendar which will be sold to raise money
  • - Weekly raffle

We’ll be sharing our fundraising events through our website and social media so watch this space!
