Have your say

A Sheffield-based disability charity is organising a Halloween fundraising event to support adults with autism and learning disabilities in the city.

Autism Plus is working with The Belfry pub in Beighton to host the spooky fundraiser on Friday, November 1, which will feature the Little Terrors Fancy Dress Halloween Party for children from 4pm and an adults ’80s Fright Night from 8pm.

Entry is £2.50 per child and there will be a mini disco, fancy dress competition as well as fun activities and games.

In the evening ’80s musical entertainment will be provided by local act Amy Carnall.

There will also be a raffle, fancy dress competition and silent auction.

Money raised from the event will go to Autism Plus to support its health initiative Community Health Champions – volunteers with autism who promote healthy lifestyles and living to their peers and others in the local community.

The fundraiser will help to set up a social club in the city where young adults with autism can go to socialise, learn skills, improve their confidence and develop friendships.

Julie Gascoigne, Community Health Champion Coordinator, said: “I would like to thank the Belfry for their support with organising this event.”
