Join us for a children’s sponsored one-mile walk on World Autism Awareness Day!
It’s World Autism Awareness Day on Sunday 2nd April 2017! To celebrate, we would love all of our families and friends to join us for a children’s sponsored walk.
Ask your children, siblings, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and your friends’ children to take part in Toby’s Trail. Collect sponsors to complete a mile long walk around the Earth Balance site. This will help to raise some much needed funds to continue the work we do here at The Toby Henderson Trust.
The trail starts at 11am. You can take as long as you want to do it and there will be some clues to collect along the way. Take in all of the wonderful surroundings at Earth Balance. Then, once you have completed Toby’s Trail, there will be refreshments available for you to enjoy at Toby House. We’ll have a little prize for the children taking part too!
Come along and enjoy a lovely family day out with us!
If you and your family would like to take part please contact Victoria at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest and to receive your sponsorship forms.
