Win a visit from the Autistic Gardener

 

World Autism Awareness Month – April 2019

Schools & Colleges – Win a chance to share your Silly Sock Day with Channel 4’s Autistic Gardener!

Silly Sock Day is back and we can’t wait to see your socks! On Friday 5th April we will be holding our annual Silly Sock Day as part of World Autism Awareness Week (1-7 April).

On that day we ask you to wear your silliest, craziest, wackiest socks to school, work, or even challenge your friends and family to wear their most outrageous socks for a day at home, to help us to raise vital funds.

Sign up below for your FREE fundraising pack. All Schools & Colleges who have signed-up and are based in the West Midlands area have the opportunity to be entered into a free draw to win a visit from our local gardening hero ‘The Autistic Gardener’.

Alan shot to fame when his channel 4 gardening documentary ‘The Autistic Gardener’ first aired in 2015. He was 15 when his love of gardening flourished.  He puts it down to two things – a cactus he purchased from a local florist which he nurtured on his bedroom window sill and a seed catalogue. Since then he has won numerous awards at Chelsea, Hampton Court and Tatton Park.

So make sure you sign up today and receive a FREE pack including autism awareness classroom resources and everything you will need to get your Silly Sock Day into full swing!
