Birth­day bash is just what the town needs, says mum

The Oban Times - - News 7 -

WALK­ING up the hill to the Scot­tish Autism Oban’s 10th birth­day party at Gana­van shinty pitch, a mother of two was ful­some in her praise.

Oban woman, Colleen Camp­bell, said: ‘This is a great. Ev­ery­thing is free and the kids can play as long as they like. We need more things like this in Oban.’

Hun­dreds of chil­dren and par­ents had turned out to celebrate the work of the Oban char­ity. Scot­tish Autism Oban works with a small num­ber of chil­dren, pro­vid­ing a sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment for chil­dren to de­velop skills and build con­fi­dence.

Party plan­ner and out­reach worker, Pamela An­der­son, said: ‘Our aim is to make the lives of the chil­dren we sup­port more ful­filled and en­riched.

‘We meet in the Lorne Re­source Cen­tre on a Satur­day morn­ing.’
