£600 – National Autistic Society (See the Gallery)

On a damp Summer’s evening in July, WBro David Greig WM of Uxbridge Lodge 7066, along with his almoner WBro Kevin Gates presented a cheque for £600 to Antoinette Mullally, the chief executive of the charity HACS (Hillingdon Autistic Care and Support). The money was raised during David’s previous year as Master who chose HACS because he has a 45 year old brother with autism. David said that HACS had been a charity in existence for 18 years and constantly required funds to carry out their important work in the community for both children and adults with autism as well as their carers.

The cheque was presented at their AGM which was attended by the trustees, parents of autistic children and also some of the children and adults with autism, all of whom are supported by HACS. The Mayor of Hillingdon, councillor George Cooper, and his wife councillor Judith Cooper were also in attendance and the Mayor addressed the chair and the audience at the end of the meeting with his reasons for supporting HACS.

After the meeting, everyone joined together for a BBQ which despite the summer drizzle was an enjoyable occasion.

If you have been touched by someone near to you with autism and would like to support HACS, please see their website:
