Children from Hucknall’s Indigo Club had a whale of a time at a recent Open Day.

The Beardsall Street resource centre which caters for children with autism and their families, held the event on Saturday 20th July and transformed the outside space into a fun park.

“It was a wonderful day that was well supported,” said volunteer and trustee, Chris Shaw. “The aim of the day was to raise awareness of autism, offer support to families and get the group noticed in the wider community.

“We had several stalls, an inflatable slide, outside toys to enjoy, face painting as well as crafts.

“It was a really good day and the weather was warm but not too hot, making conditions ideal.”

Indigo Kids is a support group for children with autism or social and communication difficulties, their parents and siblings.

Their aim is to educate others about autism and increase social awareness as well as enhancing the lives of children and increase the amount of activities that they can participate in.

“We also provide a welcome place for parents to relax and meet,” added Chris.

Indigo Kids is running a Summer Holiday Club for two weeks running from Monday 12th August. The cost is £10 per session which lasts from 10am-3pm and is open to children on the autistic spectrum.
