The nursery is supporting the cause after Tom Bowes, a play worker at Bright Kids, was appointed as an ambassador for the charity.
Autism Puzzles contacted Tom, who also has the condition, after finding a Facebook page that he had set up to offer advice and guidance to those with Autism and their families.
Tom’s page, Autistic Genius, attracted almost 2,000 Likes within a week as he shared ideas and support with parents, teachers and carers of children with Autism.
Tom also posts talks that he has given to groups of people about his condition and offers tips and suggestions for topics of discussion.
Anita Shepherd, manager at the nursery, said: “We are incredibly proud of Tom and the commitment he shows to supporting others with Autism. To show our support, we hosted our first fund-raising event for Autism Puzzles with a Onesie Day, where children and staff will dress up and each pay £1 which will be donated to the charity.”
A total of £32 was raised. The nursery is also planning a sensory week next month to raise further awareness of the condition.
