On Friday 5th April organisations around the East Midlands donned their silly socks in order to raise awareness of autism and fundraise for regional autism charity Autism East Midlands. Over 50 businesses from across the East Midlands took part. These included Rolls Royce, The Nottingham Panthers and Avant Homes. In addition 39 School, colleges and universities joined in with the fun.
The autism spectrum is wide-ranging, no two autistic individuals are alike as autism affects everybody differently. It can occur alongside other conditions such as anxiety, depression and learning disability.
