Autism Rocks (Fife) has become a fully-registered Scottish charity and is pursuing its aim of a purpose-built centre in Levenmouth for treatment of the condition.
Group member Tracey Millar, pictured left, and her running partner took part recently in the Great Scottish Run to gather funds for the group – which also now has its own office space in Quayside House at Methil Docks.
Founder and chairman Liza Quin, of Methil, said the group was concentrating on gathering funds to begin planning on the specially-adapted support centre, which it hoped to build locally.
Buckhaven Bowling Club is holding a fundraising event this Sunday, starting at 2.00 p.m., featuring bingo, raffles, singers and more.
Tickets are available from the club and from Burt’s Bar, or at the door on the day.
“We have our Autism Rocks (Fife) wristbands on sale for £2 and we are planning awareness days on as many high streets as we can,” added Liza.
“So we are definitely moving forward towards our goal.”
