Tipperary Town Autism Group to benefit from Fashion Show on July 10th

Our group is so honoured that the Pride of Tipperary Committee have chosen us to be the beneficiary of this year's Fashion Show on July 10th.

This is a huge event in the Festival Week each year and some of our members and their children look forward to modelling on the night. The monies raised will be used towards fun days during the year and in particular summer camps. As parents we find the summer change in routine stressful and it is very difficult to enrol our kids in camps as they usually only cater for typical children.

The camps that are available to children with extra needs are often priced at extortionate rates. This summer we have organised a specialised programme of activities tailored to their needs such as sensory and messy play, interactive animal roadshows, physical activities such as bouncy castle and zumba as well as autism friendly outings. Tickets are priced at €20 each and can be purchased at Jerry Esmonde Fruit and Veg, Market Yard, Tipperary or if you message our Facebook page we will arrange ticket delivery. Many thanks in advance.
