Aspierations Christmas Party 11/12/15
The day dawned wet and miserable but nothing could stop the indomitable Christmas spirit and good cheer of the Aspierations and Autieness Facebook group.
From far and wide they travelled to the Child Developmental Centre, Wensley Close in SE London, who had kindly offered the use of their facilities for the gathering of autistic adults, parents and children.
At 1 o’clock the party started with plenty of food drink and Christmas songs intermittently interrupted with the excited squeals and laughter of the members children.
A ball pit room along with a beautifully equipped sensory room had the sensory
stimuli for the children and adults
perfectly catered for.
I’d like to thank the very kind businesses whose donations of doughnuts from Greggs Foundation, a gift card for food
from Sainsbury’s, balloon animals and swords donated by Story Face, mascots and face painting donated by Bubbles and Bounce, fruit from the local greengrocers, children’s bubble bath from Weston’s Pharmacy and paper plates from Avery Hill True Man made the party a great success.
An array of food ranging from sandwiches to sausage rolls, chicken to marmite cheesecake and from pasties to roast parsnips made for a g
eat feast which was enjoyed by all.
The party was also attended by the local papers photographer who took some wonderful pictures of the children and a brilliant group picture.
