As I head towards the 1st anniversary of my mums death, it was really important for me to connect with our closest families and volunteers who have supported not only me, but each other and Autism Angels over the last year. These amazing people, who have their own journeys to navigate have been kind, compassionate, thoughtful and incredibly supportive through one of the most difficult times of my life. I wanted to thank them all by getting together and celebrating our new beginnings.
We got together for walking, talking, riding, bouncy castles and a great BBQ. We also managed to get some filming in for a ‘special project’, more info later, and some professional photos done by Steve from Nidd Gorge and Lauren Walker. The sun shone down on these wonderful families as we laughed, cried and caught up on what’s been happening for everyone. We had our biggest ride out ever with nearly 50 people enjoying the Yorkshire countryside on horseback, leading dogs or taking a stroll. We then ended the day with a balloon release (all biodegradable) so we can send our love and wishes to the sky. There is something truly amazing about just being together with people you care about. What a perfect day! Big hugs to everyone and we can’t wait to see you all again soon.
