I first ran the Royal Parks Half for The Fred Foundation 10 years ago and this year I’ll be doing it again.  The course hasn’t got any shorter and I don’t seem to be any younger but I’m still proud to be running for The Fred.  

The  charity, inspired by my son Fred, has been supporting children with autism and their families since 2007.  

It helps fund education programmes that allow kids to reach their potential through individualised, specialised programmes that match their needs instead of a ‘one size fits all’ approach.  Education is the only commonly accepted intervention for autism and in every case, the early years are critical to finding that child again and unlocking their world. 

The recent pandemic has highlighted, with sometimes heartbreaking results, how lack of the right support can cause immense suffering, not only to autistic children, but also their families.

Please donate what you can here – it will help The Fred Foundation and also inspire me to get round!
