The focus of World Autism Awareness Week 2015, which runs from 27th March to 2nd April, is to �Stand out for Autism�, with the aim to raise awareness and support for those living with autism and their families.

The six to ten year-olds raised �110, which will be donated to the Linden House Day Centre in Godalming. Linden House is a day service for adults with autism that provides educational, recreational and vocational training.

Jade Palmer, ACS Egham teacher, organised the fundraiser and commented:

"It was a fun day for the children to dress up, but the most important part was deepening the children�s understanding of autism and increasing awareness."
