From 11am - 3pm Damo and Marvo, The Family Entertainers, bouncy castles and sweet table will be there to encourage the children to bounce and party and play together without discrimination or judgement. This is a FREE EVENT and open to ALL children and families - the purpose is to show Autism that it is Accepted.

From 7:30pm, THE FLOOD, a Take That tribute band who will be visiting Gala for their first time and hope to raise a lot of money for the Breather-Van. The evenings entertainment costs just £5 per ticket when purchased online from before the 2nd September - cost on the door will be £7 - early bookings will be able to purchase 4 tickets for the price of 3 - so early booking makes sense.

We will collect all unwanted books, give them to a new, local community interest company which will sell them on the internet and BAAGS will make money!!!

Please, everyone who has books they no longer need or want this is an opportunity for you to help our charity, and to clear your shelves and cupboards too!!!

You can also help your family, friends and neighbours by telling them about this scheme.

When you have books you want uplifted, please contact me, and I will arrange collection of them. What could be simpler?

Please pass this information to everyone, the more books we uplift, the better our funds will be, meaning the more information, toys and aids we can supply to the Asperger/Autistic persons who need them.
