The text donate code ‘SHOP15 £2’ has been launched by Castlepoint and Autism Wessex to help raise vital funds for the charity. Peter Matthews, General Manager at Castlepoint said: “We are delighted to be supporting Autism Wessex and we will be getting involved in a number of campaigns throughout the year. We hope to raise awareness of the work the charity does and hope our shoppers will donate whatever they can. On an average Saturday Castlepoint welcomes 35,000 shoppers, if everyone donated just £2 via text donate we could raise an amazing £70,000 for the charity.”
Autism Wessex provides three main areas of support. Information and Advice, the free information service offering unbiased advice to anyone who needs it, Community Wessex, for social care and residential services and Portfield School for education and respite services.
Emily Pike, Corporate Partnerships Officer, said: “The work the charity does is varied and far reaching and we need to fundraise to continue to be able to provide specialist services for anyone affected by autism. To support Autism Wessex and donate £2 please text ‘SHOP15 £2’ to 70070.”
