Autism Support Dogs Fundraiser – featuring Burnside & Vaseline
A night of fun and fund raising in aid of Autism Assistance Dogs featuring a double header by two of Birmingham’s best party bands, Vaseline and Burnside. Vaseline bring you a host of punk, new wave and post punk sing a long classics (everything from The Undertones to The Jam to the Buzzcocks and Jilted John). Burnside bring you their unique live jukebox, choose from literally hundreds of songs and these multi talented lads will play, from The Pistols to The Stone Roses, The Wailers to The Who. With celebrity hosts and a charity auction it’s a night with something for everyone and all for a great cause where we aim to donate £9 of the £10 ticket price to the charity.
The autism assistance programme is life changing for both the child with autism and their family. Autism Assistance Dogs are trained to provide safety and to facilitate a more independent and socially inclusive life for both the child with autism and their family.
Our clients are children with autism who are often unable to communicate or express their feelings in a way that is understood by others. They have little sense of danger or of the consequences of their actions. 1 in 100 children in the UK are diagnosed with Autism. Half of these children will have a tendency to bolt and wander off from their care givers, which can be very dangerous, and has often resulted in injuries to the child.
Autism Assistance Dogs are trained to provide safety and companionship, helping to bring independence and a more socially inclusive life to both the child and their family.
