Story

I am doing a Tandem Parachute Jump in the near future (weather permitting!), partly for my own "pleasure" but also for charity.

As you may or may not be aware, my eldest son Lewis is on the Autistic Spectrum. This disorder affects an awful lot of people in many different ways and to many different degrees. One thing they all have in common, is that day to day life can often be confusing and unsettling.

To help young people with Autistic Spectrum Conditions in my area, a charity called Friends Of In Touch, provide a youth club like weekly support and meeting group for these young people. They also arrange activity days, so that their young people can get out and do things that they otherwise wouldn't get to do. During Lewis' time at the group, he has been helped to learn some important skills, but more importantly gets to mix with others who have the same day to day struggles that he has.

As Friends Of In Touch is a charity, they survive solely on grants and fundraising, and at times have been faced with having to stop giving help due to lack of funding. Myself and my family are very grateful to Friends Of In Touch for the help and enjoyment they have given to Lewis, and for that reason I want to raise as much money as I can.
