“My youngest daughter Amy was diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder whilst she was in nursery. Amy is progressing and developing above and beyond our wildest expectations.

As parents we were obviously concerned about her transition from nursery to ‘big school’ and spent many hours talking with teachers and the LEA trying to agree and understand what support Amy required and also what she was entitled to… this was not a straight forward process… When we heard about the SNAP Cymru organisation my wife contacted them for guidance and I cannot praise or thank them enough.

They guided, supported and helped us every step of the way and without them, I believe our experience would have been so much different.

When I found out I had been successful in obtaining a ballot place in the London Marathon, I wanted to return the favour and this is my small way of thanking them for all the support they have given my family.”
