Below are our supports and their challenges for 2013.

Lois Rankin (email)
I will be taking part in the 2013 Potters Arf Marathon on June 9th this year, in aid of Autism Aware UK. Those that know me, will know Im not a runner at heart but thought this would be a great challenge and a fantastic way of raising money for the charity. The run starts from Hanley Town Centre from 10.30am, so feel free to come along on the day to give me a little shout of encouragement (I “may” need it!)
This is going to be a tough one for me so I hope you all dig deep & make it worth the pain!!
Fandoms 4 Autism (email)
Fandoms 4 Autism launched last year to help Autism Aware UK to raise money for the National Autistic Society. It was a great success and we raised just under £815 for NAS through them.
This year we’re back and aimng to raise £1,000 but this time the monies we raise will go straight to Kim and Jon’s charity. We’re creating a compilation of not only multiple fandom fanfiction but also of orginal fiction.
