Foundation Skills students put their best foot forward to help play their part in Word Autism Awareness Week.

The students walked a massive 7k to represent the 700k people diagnosed with autism.

Walking from The Skills Academy in Billingham to the Daisy Chain warehouse on Portrack Lane, Stockton, tutor Leanne said: “The students were fantastic during the walk, it was an amazing experience and we are so proud of them all.”

The hike took the group one hour and 59 minutes and they raised a massive £754.10 for the North East Autism Society.

Leanne said: “This is thanks to the kindness, support and generosity of students, parents, families and staff.”
