ASD ASHFORD SUMMER FAIR 2022!
It's been 3 years since our last summer fair back in 2019 thanks to the Covid pandemic. We are beyond excited to be able to have it back again this year, in its usual home at the amazing, The Beaver Inn pub.
The Beaver Inn has supported us for as long as we have been going, they have had tough times over Covid, like a lot of hospitality, The Beaver is very special to us they believe in the power of community like us, local business, local support, helping local people!
ASD Ashford isn't funded, we have always fundraised to continue the work we do in Ashford with local families, so much of what we do goes unseen as we work directly with families, but that work includes, support pre and post diagnosis, mental health support, home visits, support at meetings, help with forms, EHCP process, tribunals, phone support outside of the 9 to 5 Mon - Fri as for many of our families concerns don't always fit around that. Sadly, of late with the cost of living crisis hitting hard we have supported families with food and necessities, Ashford has great food banks and community fridges, but this isn't always of help when you have a child who will ONLY eat a certain brand of food. So we help, we helped with Christmas food as well last year for a number of our families, as well as speaking to many on Christmas Day who were on their own.
So we would love your support! Come along if you can, share the event if you can't to help advertise the event, this also helps double fold as it means new families who may need us find us too.
Raffle prize donations are very welcomed and be dropped off directly to The Beaver Inn, TN23 7SP
We look forward to seeing some of you on the 27th August, dust off those Hawaiian shirts!
Lots of Love ASD Ashford xx
