On Friday 30th March 2012, AHS Student Council organised for the school to take part in a Silly Socks Day in aid of Autism Anglia. The students of Aylsham High School wore their brightest, silliest socks for the day in return for a small donation to the worthy cause! We managed to raise £121 during the day.
Autism Anglia provides a free Family Support service to families affected by the condition, as well as adult residential and educational services and an autism-specific school. This was the charity’s second Silly Sock Day – last year’s raised more than £3,800, and they are hoping to do even better in 2012.
Lots of schools, companies and families all took part, with everyone wearing their silliest socks and donating as little as £1 each to help Autism Anglia continue providing their essential services across the region.
The pupils of Aylsham High School were glad to take part in Silly Sock Day, and we hope that our donation will help Autism Anglia to continue their amazing work.
