Two charity events for autism cause lined up in Swaffham




With more than £15,000 raised for the National Autistic Society already, further events are lined up to help meet a fundraiser’s £20,000 target.

Owner of the Just Hair salon on Station Street, Gill Creed, will run the London Marathon next month because her four-year-old nephew Cole was diagnosed with autism.

Having held a charity ball at Lynford Hall Hotel in November which raised £10,065, Mrs Creed has now organised a Just Hair coffee morning.

This will take place on Wednesday, March 13 from 10am until noon in the town’s Assembly Rooms.

Tickets cost 50p and can be purchased on the door or from Just Hair.

A total of £10,065 was raised for the cause during a charity ball in Mundford in November. Pictured from left to right are Lucy Dickerson, Terry Creed, Gill Creed, John Higgs and Tanya Pitt (7646214)

Mark Jackson, of Barclays in Fakenham, has pledged to match the funds raised from this for the cause.

A second event in aid of The National Autistic Society will take place on Saturday, April 6.

This will be a hog roast at Market Cross, starting at 6.30pm. Tickets cost £10 for adults and £5 for under-12s, and can be bought from Market Cross or Just Hair.

Live music will be performed during the evening featuring Pot of Gold-Swaffham Shanty Crew.

Mrs Creed will be running the marathon as a team on Sunday, April 28 with her son Terry, friend John Higgs, colleague Tanya Pitt and Lucy Dickerson, Cole’s mother.

She hailed the “amazing” response to her fundraising.
