With my 40th birthday approaching and feeling slightly dubious, I decided I wanted to do something that could make a difference. Something with depth and worthwhile. Asperger syndrome is something that is close to my heart and I wanted to raise awareness and funds for children on the autism spectrum.
My idea was to gather some close friends and organise a trek in Snowdonia on my birthday. With two months to plan the trip, I contacted The National Autistic Society and they kindly supported me with ideas and importantly with helping receive press coverage. The trek was a success and raised over £500.
