Over 100 children and their families enjoyed a fun-packed activities day at Daisy Chain to mark World Autism Awareness Day.

Special entertainment included inflatables, spectacular giant bubble blowing, circus skills, face painting and go-karting.

The annual fun day for families affected by autism at the Daisy Chain day centre and farm at Norton was sponsored by Newcastle Building Society which has been supporting Daisy Chain for several years. The organisation recently hosted its first autism friendly craft day in its Yarm Library branch.

Youngsters were also able to enjoy the petting farm, soft play, baking and a whole host of craft activities and games.
