Florence is an autistic woman and a patient in a mental health hospital who organised her own World Autism Awareness Day event. On 1 April, she gave a presentation, explaining more about autism and her experience of life on the autism spectrum. To raise money, Florence got crafty by crocheting and making artwork to sell, as well as hosting a bake sale and raffle. Florence raised an amazing £2,373.46! Thank you, Florence.
"Raising autism awareness is important as there is a lot of misinformation. I am finally in a place where I feel like staff understand me better."
