Finally, a huge great thankyou to all those who took part in last weekend's Glasgow run for Scottish Autism, and also to the 15 volunteers from law firm Maclay, Murray and Spens who gave up their their Sunday to help refresh and modernise the Abbi Centre in Abercromby Street. They worked for 6 solid hours to paint 6 rooms and and enormous hallway. As well as the volunteers time, the law firm had a budget which completely supported the material costs. Scottish Autism cannot thank you enough guys-you really have added value to the experience of our service users.
