ASD Family Help

ASD Family Help, a charity based in Wokingham offering advice, support and activities to individuals on the autistic spectrum or/and learning difficulties received a donation of £3,000 from local Wokingham Freemasons. The donation was made by the Berkshire Masonic Charity in conjunction with a local Freemasons Lodge based in Sindlesham.

Darrell Hutton, whose daughter has used ASD’s services, and is a member of Hennerton Lodge in Sindlesham. He worked with the ASD to put their case to the Berkshire Masonic Charity and they were able to make this donation.

ASD, which is based in Wokingham and provides help throughout Wokingham and West Berkshire, aims to improve services for children and adults who are on the autistic spectrum, their parents and carers through raising awareness of these issues.  The donation will provide help with training courses and supporting our awareness activities.

David Gander, who is chair of the charity said: “We are so grateful to the local Freemasons for this generous gift.  It will help us to raise awareness of autism and the help we can give individual, their families and carers.”

Darrell Hutton, a Berkshire Freemason, said: “Our daughter has been helped by ASD and with the BMC’s support we can help them continue the fabulous work they do in Wokingham and West Berkshire.”
