We have lots of events running throughout the year. Please take a look at the following for more details below
The Curly Hair Project Workshops
The CHP workshops are ideal for those who care for, teach, or work with children and adults with Asperger’s or other ASDs, and they meet Continuing Professional Development criteria. They are also great for those with an ASD or not yet diagnosed, family members and anyone who is simply interested in knowing more. Written by the brilliant author Alis Rowe – ‘the girl with the curly hair’ - they last around 2 ½ hours and are relaxed, informative and uplifting with lots of great images to explain things.
Tickets are £15 per person (+booking fees) and can be purchased at http://thegirlwiththecurlyhair.co.uk/events/ where more information about the Curly Hair Project can also be found. I have attached 2 posters for you to share and display if possible, and you may wish to forward this email on to anyone else who would be interested.
The workshops are relevant for male and female adults and children and you can attend any or all of the workshops.

Nightrider Bristol is back for 2017!
Saturday 1st - Sunday 2nd July
This is a one-day charity ride with a difference. It's at night! Nightrider is all about getting together with your friends, family or work colleagues and taking on a challenge together in a entertaining way. This is not a timed ride, it’s not a sportive, it’s all about having a good time together, seeing the sights and raising funds.
Full details on the NAS website: http://www.autism.org.uk/get-involved/raise-money/cycle/nightrider-bristol.aspx

Dragon Boat Race Sunday 18th June at Bristol Harbourside
We're fast approaching that time of year when a crew of intrepid rowers push off to raise funds for our young adult carers.
This year's boat 'YAC Attack' is crewed by a gang of young adult carers, staff, adult carers and their friends. This mixture of experienced and novice dragon boaters will be doing their best to battle through the rounds and claim glory - or at the very least hold a straight line and have a good laugh!
If you're not already involved do come down to the Harbourside and cheer the team on. It's scientifically proven that cheering boosts rowing performance..... honestly!! Their first race is at 10am and you will find our gazebos near the Cottage Inn. And anyway it's a great day out.
Please share this link to our just giving page with anyone you can think of. Thank you on behalf of the rowers and Young Adult Carers http://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/CSCDragonBoatRace2017
