On Sunday 19th May a number of Explorers from Bore Stane and Meadows ESUs volunteered to help at an inspiring event called the Walk for Autism. Whilst there, we helped at the food (sweets) and souvenir stall as well as helping to run the tombola.

We watched as everyone set off on the walk around Arthur’s Seat and watched them as they returned through the finish line with looks of joy on their faces. There were lots of people who took part in the walk, from all over, and it was a great opportunity to raise awareness for autism and help Autism Scotland which was the charity that ran the event. All in all, it was a great event to attend as it was a real eye-opener and great fun.
