Just a heads up to let folk know that the popular local autism support group ‘Supporting the Rainbow’ is meeting today (Tuesday 17th December 2019) – and this is also a good chance to point out that this Saturday they also have a Christmas Fete in support of the charity at Brownhills Commounity Centre, too.
The group is open to parents and carers for those with autism, and aims to offer a welcoming, helpful and supportive network to those coping with the condition.
Supporting the Rainbow 🌈 is now an official charity affiliated with Rethink Mental Health!
After some discussions we have made some changes to our group meetings and venue: from October 8th 2019 we will be having our group meetings at Brownhills Community Centre
We have checked the venue and we have a beautiful room on the ground floor, so it makes it easier for people with pushchairs and people with disabilities to manage.
Our times will still be 1:30-2:30pm but instead of meeting every week, we will be fortnightly.
We are really looking forward to this new change and our lovely group can progress and move onward: we can look to having workshops and so much more.
The fortnightly meetings make it easier for some people who can’t come every week, and we will be having a raffle and tea and biscuits so please do come along to a warm friendly atmosphere!
From the Supporting the Rainbow 🌈 team
The group has been running for a good while now and is still growing in popularity – so why not pop along to see what it’s all about?
Then on Saturday 21st December 2019 from 12:30-4:30pm, there will be a great Christmas Fete planned at the same venue in aid of the group, with all the usual favourites – as one of the last such events of the season locally this could be a really good chance to pick up tose last minute gifts of enjoy a little festive cheer before the chaos starts…
