Leighton residents are being invited to enjoy a cuppa and cake to support Autism Bedfordshire.

Family-run IT business JamCrackers are holding the event from 10am to noon on Thursday, April 7, at Sandhills Community House on Plover Road.

It’s to mark Autism Awareness Week which runs from April 2 - 8 and all proceeds will go directly to the charity.

It’s also to celebrate a one-year partnership between JamCrackers and Autism Bedfordshire. The company has pledged to help raise awareness and funds and has various activities planned including a charity gof day.

Autism Bedfordshire was founded in 19919. It aims to improve the quality of life for people with autism and their families in the local community.

It runs a number of services in the town including a social activity group for children and a youth club for teenagers with the condition.

JamCrackers business development manager Sabrina Latimer said: “We’ve been so touched by the donations and offers of support for this event.

“If you’re free, please pop along and help us support this fantastic charity.”
