Youth Lego Club for those on the Autistic Spectrum

Treads is a youth information and advisory center in Blandford Forum. Once a week we run a very successful club for youths on the Autistic Spectrum. This gives young people the chance to get together once a week with others who know what if feels like to be them, enhancing their social skills, confidence and self esteem. We would like to extend our club to include a once a month Lego session. To do this we urgently require the donation of Lego.
