Aspirations and Autieness Summer Party
On the 26th of August I hosted Aspierations sixth meet up with the previous ones being in Greenwich, Manchester, Nandos in Greenwich, Colchester and then the Christmas party which was also held in Wensley Close, Eltham.
Wensley is a Children’s Developmental Centre and has a well equipped sensory room and a beautiful out door play area along with friendly staff, it’s the same place my son was diagnosed as autistic and holds a special place in my heart.
The day of the party dawned bright and sunshiny and after getting up early to prepare sandwiches, fruit salad, chicken and a vegetable salad myself and my little people set off in a cab to prepare the room.
With help from good friends the party went with a bang and was well attended with the children being thoroughly entertained by StoryFace who very kindly donated her time to make balloon creations and gave the children glitter tattoos which they adored.
I’d like to thank The Works for their brilliant gift of goods for the children.
As I had over thirty autism books to get rid of I took them along and got a donation pot from the nearby Demelza a wonderful children hospice that provide long term and end of life care for sick children.
I’d like to thank Sara Challinger, Tracy Selby, Laura Chase, Hayley Porter and friend who was lovely but who’s name has escaped me, Ross Muncur, Carmel Rea for coming and bringing so much tasty food, their gorgeous children and most importantly….themselves.
I’d like to thank Linda Mitchell a renowned music therapist whom many of the families already knew for popping in and making my little daughters day, thanks to StoryFace for making the day magical and most of all thank you to Wensley Close for allowing me to host the meet up.
Roll on October for the Nandos gathering! Xxx
