Note of thanks

Good evening everyone, I just wanted to take a moment to convey our thanks to a few people.

Firstly we would like to thank Alex Little from Alex Little Funeral Directors as they have chosen Autism Rocks (Fife) as their Charity of the year . Its an honour to be working alongside Alex and his team , raising some much needed awareness along the way. Thank you to the local community who donated over £100 while lighting a memorial candle for their loved ones . And for the donation of selection boxes we received for our families at our xmas party .

We would like to convey our heartfelt condolences and thanks to Mrs Betty Laing and family for their donation of £188.30 in memory of the late Mr Duncan Laing.

Also to Mrs Sharon Cunningham and family for their donation of £224.76 in memory of Mrs Margo Beckwith. Our sincere condolences and thanks.

Finally I would like to thank those of you who made a donation to Autism Rocks (Fife) instead of sending xmas cards. Your support is very much appreciated.

Feeling extremely humbled (and a tad emotional) for the support that our local community gives us. It truly does mean so so much to us all . We couldn't do what we do without this kind of support so I cant thank everyone enough.

Thank you all.
