6th February 2020
We are delighted to announce a new initiative for 2020 at Britcom - Charity Of The Year.
Britcom regularly support and have ongoing sponsorship deals with various groups and clubs in the Market Weighton and surrounding areas and these will continue.
Following our recent fundraising for Market Weighton School defibrillator fund, the Britcom staff wanted to start doing something on a more regular basis, to help a very small local charity that we felt we could make a real difference to. And so Charity Of The Year was born.
We can confirm that our Charity Of The Year 2020 is the Community Autism Project East Riding based in Market Weighton. Formed by a group of local parents and professionals with an interest in Autistic Spectrum Conditions, they share a common desire to help make life easier for individuals with autism and their families and support them before, during and after a diagnosis.
One of the key initiatives the Charity offers is regular drop in coffee mornings where parents and carers can go and discuss their situations and share advice with people who have experience in Autism themselves - or just pop in for a chat! The coffee mornings run every Friday and are open to anyone who wants to learn more about CAP or support them.
The Charity is run solely by volunteers; the Britcom staff feel that across the year we can really help make quite a difference to them through our fundraising activities. And we've already started putting money in the pot with our first dress down day of the year held at the end of January.
The Charity is also looking for more volunteers; they are a growing charity and can only continue to add quality support by having more hands on deck. So if you feel you can help, please get in touch with Marie at firstname.lastname@example.org Visit www.communityautismproject.org and you can follow Community Autism Project - Market Weighton on Facebook.
Check back regularly for updates and don't forget to visit their website to find out more about the excellent support this fantastic charity offers.
