“We decided to fund raise for autism west midlands as it is a charity close to our hearts. A long standing member of our team has recently been through diagnosis process with his young daughter. The support he has received from everyone has been amazing therefore, it was important for us to help in providing funds for this support to continue for anyone in need”.

The reasons TSB New Street chose Autism West Midlands is firstly we wanted a charity that really helps and supports the local community, secondly it was close to my heart as my nephew has autism and seeing the daily struggles he has to go through and knowing there is a charity like yourselves that helps children and adults integrate into society and supports them in their day to day struggles. So far this year we have climbed up Mount Snowdon, had a bake sale, we also had Christmas hampers as well as currently a valentines inspired event, whereby customers can guess how many sweets are in the jar.

Raising money for a really good cause is a great way to bring everybody together, giving them a common goal. If you want to get your team fundraising at work we can help you come up with lots of ideas.

Your time and expertise are extremely valuable to us – some of our events simply couldn’t happen without our volunteers. If you want to volunteer regularly, we would love to hear from you. We’re also lucky to have companies and agencies who share their expertise with us, as well as companies who generously donate prizes for our special events. This helps us invest more money where it is most needed in providing support for autistic people. Are you able to donate a gift in kind? If so please contact us. If you have any other ideas about how we might work together in a mutually beneficial relationship, or if you’d like any additional information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Your sponsorship means we can raise more money from our events and activities.
