London schools get colourful with socks
Schools across London boroughs celebrated the launch of an autism and Asperger charity by encouraging children to dress in bright colours.

The Jewish Autism Trust asked children across London schools to wear colourful socks, tights, shoes and head coverings, raising over £900 for the charity.

The Trust has been designed to help parents share their individual experiences and receive support.

For only £1, the children could wear brightly coloured socks and tights to school, helping to raise awareness and show the fun side of charity fundraising.

Autism can affect an individual's ability to communicate, interact and interpret emotions causing day to day issues for parents.

The Jewish Autism Trust will enable parents to receive support and information on coping with this developmental disability in the form of books and public speakers.
