Asperger’s group gets helping hand

A foundation set up to help children with Asperger’s has received $ 1155 from Tawa Z Energy’s national Good in the Hood 2015 initiative. The votes determined the portion of the total prize that each group received.

Cloud 9, which caters for people with high-functioning Asperger’s, received $1155.

Bill Murray, the foundation’s co-ordinator, said such people were very intelligent, but had trouble in social situations, especially intuition.

‘‘Cloud 9 receives no grants or government funding, so we are very reliant on charities and donations.’’

Using artwork by Sophie Smith, the girls have produced the temporary tattoos to raise money for the animal welfare charity Paw Justice, the child cancer support group Dream Chaser and Cloud 9, which helps people with Asperger’s Syndrome.

Group member Gemma Christall, 16, said 80 per cent of the profits would go to the charities, with a price of $2 for one temporary tattoo.

“The target market is younger people like us,” she said.
