Volunteers dressed up in colourful attire recently to take part in a sponsored walk across the Forth Bridge, which raised over £1000 for Autism Rocks (Fife).

The group is aiming to create a purpose-built facility in Levenmouth to specialise in treatment and understanding of autism, for those with the condition and their families.

Members are also forming a project team to seek funding from the Big Lottery Fund and exploring the Stalled Spaces initiative, in which vacant, derelict or neglected spaces can be used for beneficial community schemes.

Participants in the walk dressed up in colours which represented the Autism Rocks (Fife) logo and founder/chairman Liza Quinn described the response as “tremendous”.

She added: “There was a fantastic turnout with 46 people – adults , kids and two dogs. Even with the awful weather – cold and wind – the support was fantastic. Everyone enjoyed it.”
