    Story

    Help us buy some brand new Books for Hollinwood Academy.

    Hollinwood Academy is a purpose built specialist school for children on the Autism Spectrum.They have a capacity of 140 places which are currently over allocated due to demand.

    The Academy opened in September 2015 and in the short space of time they have been operating, they have achieved a mark of Outstanding in all areas from Ofsted.

    The Academy has recently lost the use of their library room due to demand for space. It is now being used as a classroom.

    Autism is something that is very close to my heart. My son Alexander is 7 years old and he is Autistic. He struggles to talk and communicate and finds it difficult to build friendships and bond with his peers. He also has Sensory Processing Disorder which affects him daily. He struggles with certain sounds and environments and this can be quite debilitating for him.

    Despite all this, Alexander is an absolutely beautiful little boy. He is happy and funny, bright and intelligent. He also gives the best hugs!

    Each year I fundraise for the National Autistic Society (NAS) for Autism Awareness Week. Previously I have participated in 2 Night Walks for Autism, set up a raffle with all donations going to the NAS plus we held a Vintage Tea Party with all proceeds and donations going directly to the NAS.

    This year Autism Awareness Week runs between the 1st and 7th April.

    I would like my fundraising to go back into my local community. I would like to raise as much money as possible to enable me to buy some brand new books for the students at Hollinwood Academy. I want them to have their library back and allow the children to access to some wonderful new books and resources.

    I run my own business called The Krafty Bookworm so I have access to thousands of amazing books and resources that I can give to the students at Hollinwood.

    Every single penny raised will be spent on books and any commission I make processing the order will also be donated back into the funds to buy more books.

    No profit will be made from my fundraising. Please donate where possible and please share around with your friends and family and in your local community and lets get as many new books as we possibly can for the students at Hollinwood Academy
