Mum’s snip for autism

Strathearn Herald - - STRATHEARN VIEW - Ross Gar­diner

A Creiff mum is hav­ing her hair cut off to sup­port Perth Autism Sup­port.

Sharon Bain is hav­ing her hair cropped at Mor­ri­son’s Academy Hall in Cri­eff on Satur­day, Septem­ber 30, as part of a planned 90s-themed fundraiser for Perth Autism Sup­port.

The full-time carer, whose son Ty­rone (10) has re­lied on sup­port from the char­ity for the last three years, is des­per­ate to see the ser­vice stay open.

She said:“Perth Autism Sup­port would be missed greatly and with­out it, we would be lost. Every­one is pour­ing their heart out and do­ing what they can to save it.

“They work tire­lessly to pro­vide an un­be­liev­able ser­vice across Perth and Kin­ross.”

Sharon’s hair cur­rently reaches half­way down her back, and if she meets her tar­get of £2000 she’ll chop it all off, how­ever most of it will be cut off even if she doesn’t hit the tar­get.

Perth Autism Sup­port had pre­pared to close with im­me­di­ate ef­fect at the end of Au­gust due to a lack of fund­ing. How­ever, emer­gency grants have en­sured that the char­ity can con­tinue to pro­vide its ser­vice un­til at least the end of Novem­ber.
