Lock down! Its affecting all of us in many ways but no more so than charity's who have found their essential funding stopped over night.

Planned fundraisers CANCELLED!
Community events CANCELLED!
Stores day centres and coffee shops CLOSED!

How do charity's survive this? We have listened to many parents speak so highly of the support and respite that Daisy Chain offers their family. Offering a range of safe play zones for autistic children and their siblings, support groups for parents, and ongoing support for the adult autistic community. During lockdown all centres closed but volunteer staff still work tirelessly to offer as much support remotely to every one of their 2129 families and tend to their community farm. All these invaluable activities, as you can imagine, comes at a heavy financial cost.

As business owners ourselves, we understand the impact that this pandemic has caused . Almost instantly your income vanishes but your overheads remain and this is where we would like to help. Our "United In Miles" campaign will see us all come together, while being so far apart. It will unite us as the strong team we are and and allow us to fund-raise together, to support this wonderful organisation.

If you would like to help Team Evolve "Unite In Miles" simply go to www.evolvechildren.com, where there's a brief explanation of how to enter and start tracking your miles!
