Small autism charity gets a big boost
A Bridge of Allan-based charity for children on the autistic spectrum has received a welcome boost.
Construction industry businesses Procladd Scotland Ltd and Regis Roofing Supplies raised £2500 for Blue Sky Autism Project thanks to a golf day at Gleneagles.
The charity works with children aged one to 10 who have a diagnosis or are showing signs of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Service manager Christopher Campbell said:“Being a small charity, we receive no core funding from the government and we rely solely on small grants or fundraising to keep our service open.
“With a donation of this size it has made a massive difference to us and means we can continue to provide much needed support to these children when no one else can.
“The companies put on a big annual fundraiser every year at Gleneagles (golf, shooting, food and drink with prizegiving then charity raffle and auction for about 80 people) and select a charity to benefit from the event.
“This year they chose Blue Sky because they had heard about the amazing work we were doing and wanted to help.”
