World Autism Day 2019 at Daisy Chain

Over 120 children and their families enjoyed a fun-packed activities day at Daisy Chain to mark World Autism Awareness Day.

Special entertainment included spectacular giant inflatables, fun on the farm, arts and crafts, giant bubbles and a chance to learn some circus skills.

The annual fun day for families affected by autism at the Daisy Chain day centre and farm at Norton was sponsored by Charles Clinkard. The footwear specialist has been supporting Daisy Chain for several years.

Daisy Chain has worked closely Charles Clinkard to help the company train staff and create a bespoke personalised service for families affected by autism.

Charles Clinkard, managing director, said: ‘At Charles Clinkard we feel it is very important to look after our customers and understand their individual needs. Our team were very keen to find out more about autism so that they can make the experience of trying and buying shoes as easy as possible. Having autism awareness training with Daisy Chain has really helped the team to understand how they can deliver the best service to anyone affected by autism.

‘It’s an excellent service that Daisy Chain provides, helping businesses understand their customers’ needs and we were delighted to be able to support the family fun day to celebrate World Autism Awareness Day.’
