National Autistic Society

We support the 700,000 people with autism to help them live the life they choose

Charity Registration No. 269425


I am friends with two people Wally and Aby Walton, two people with massive generous hearts and who would help anybody at anytime if they could. Two really special friends.

Their oldest son Guy is an extremely talented footballer currently on the books of Milton Keynes Dons.

Their youngest son, Gerard who is 4 years old, faces the challanges that Autism brings.

He does so with a smile on his face and a warmth that immediately endears him to all he meets.

The next few years are extremly important in term of his development and education.

His quality of life can be positively affected by monies raised, for both the immediate and long term future.

All money donated will be directed through the National Autistic society. £2000 will be directed towards national research and then every other penny will be given to Oakley Lower School in Oakley where Gerard completes his learning.


My intention is not to aim for a fast time but to raise as much as I can for this excellent cause, dressing up, shaving bits, auctioning excellent donated prizes, holding a gala evening and carrying a bucket if required.

Many events will be planned and it is hoped I can count on all of you for support over the coming months.

I really appreciate every penny, as I know times are tough for many, so please donate as little or as much as you are comfortable with.

Much love
