We have received some fantastic support from companies and local businesses, from sponsorship to employee fundraising and even hosting collecting tins. Here are just a few of the ways in which they have helped us reach our goals.

Swanstaff Recruitment has been the major sponsor of our Charity Ball for the past three years giving over £7,300 towards the cost of the events and thoroughly enjoying the events in the process.  

Perrywoods Garden Centre in Tiptree has chosen Autism Anglia’s adult residential campus at Peldon as their Charity of the Year, raising over £400 by way of collection tins at their tills, a Christmas open evening and staff fundraising. They also loaned us a number of items from their Christmas display for our Narnia Ball.

Partnerships in Care, a specialist healthcare provider, have been the major sponsor of our Conference, and each year get their staff and patients involved in Silly Sock Day.

The fantastic team at BeWILDerwood adventure park in Norfolk have been brilliant supporters of Autism Anglia over the years, raising over £15,000 since 2010.  Tom Blofeld and his Twiggles host Swampy’s Silly Sock day each year to coincide with our fundraising and strive to make the park a permanent autism-friendly environment.

BP Connect, Boreham Interchange, Chelmsford, a busy filling station off the A12, has had our collection tins on their counters since 2011 and have raised over £5,279 from customers spare change.

Norwich Theatre Royal has striven to become an autism-friendly venue and has worked closely with Autism Anglia to put on relaxed performances of popular shows and pantomimes.

We are so grateful to all our corporate supporters for their sponsorship, fundraising and gifts in kind. As well as helping us to provide vital services for autistic people, you are raising awareness of autism and helping to break down the barriers that people with autism and their families face.
