Story

I have always wanted to raise money for a cause close to my heart.

As some of you may know, my brother Tom is autistic and struggles daily with commincation and dealing with his emotions. For anyone who knows a friend or family member with Autism, it is a hard life for them to do ordinary things that most people do involuntarily.

Besides the struggle of every day tasks and interactions with people, things such as getting a job, which is ordinarily hard for anyone, becomes even more difficult.

It breaks my heard that so many people with Autism want to work like the rest of us but they find the process of getting and keeping a job, difficult.

Fortunately, local charities such as Autism Centre for Supported Employment, help people find a job and offer them constant support during their employment.

My brother has been lucky to have this support for over ten years and he would not be the same without it.

He often struggles with his work, communicating to customers and colleagues in the right way, having too many thoughts and not being able to prioritize and dealing with negative comments from people who don’t understand his condition. However the charity allows a colleague to always be there for him and help him through situations. They also work as a link between the employer and employee when words don’t come easy.

In helping this charity close to my heart, I am doing Tough Mudder which if anyone knows me, they know this will be a hard feat.

Please help me with my cause, and if anyone wants a laugh, come and support me in Cheshire on 9th September .

Thank you :) x
