Ipes has raised more than £500 for Autism Guernsey through a charity day held in their St Peter Port offices.
Everyone took part in raising money which involved a dress down day, cake sale and a raffle.
Autism Guernsey launched in the island last week and aims to give autistic islanders help in a number of ways.
The charity is planning a Befriending Scheme which will see people given the training to act as individual supporters for islanders with autism. The charity is also looking to set up an Independent Living Scheme which will be run to help people who are living with their families, move out to live on their own.
Michel Davy, Managing Director, Ipes Guernsey says, “We are delighted to have helped not only raise funds for this charity but also awareness of autism and the work of this new charity in Guernsey. Autism in some way touches more people than is commonly known.”
Andy Graham, Founder and Executive Director added, 'We are extremely grateful for the generosity shown by all at Ipes. As a new charity we are working hard to secure funding to get some of our projects off the ground and events such as this help us to towards achieving our targets. In turn we are then able to provide direct support and assistance to individuals affected by autism, which is a condition that affects around 650 individuals in Guernsey.'
Baroness Jill Pitkeathly OBE formally launched the charity in Guernsey last week.
