Raising the Roof and Funds !

We kick off fundraising for 2017 and celebrate the start of Autism Awareness month with a exciting night of live music, fun and body hair !!

Four fabulous local bands have generously agreed to perform for you.

Famous Last Words These Shrewsbury Lads are well know on the local circuit, treating you to live versions of all your jukebox favourites, these guys will have you dancing the night away.

See the next big thing Nadir ( remember where you saw them first 😉 ) This talented, local, young foursome will definitely be looking to “Rock” your world.

I Am Sam are eclectic, energetic and in love with playing live. Driven by a passion for music and life this  Electric Indie/Folk/Rock band will ensure the evening goes with a swing.

Last but definitely not least ! The Rock Project Encore; the Grown Up answer to the Rock Project Shrewsbury’s highly successful Junior Classes. Bringing all those Adult Air Guitarists and Hair Brush Divas out of the shadows and into the limelight. The Rock Project Encore will definitely leave you shouting for more !

So with a Bar, Chilli and Nacho and funky flavoured popcorn to enjoy .. what more could you need ??

How about our four male playleaders being separated form their body hair with hot wax ?! To be known henceforth as the Smooth Operators, our own Fab Four; Ant, Sam, Jake and Archie have all volunteered to get either their chests or legs waxed during the evening to raise even more funds for us. You can sponsor the boys via their Golden Giving Pages or come along and the night and buy a strip to pull yourself !!

Chocks Away .. this half term

Half term is very nearly upon us =O and as always Empathy will be Out and About. As the weather can be a bit unkind at this time of year we have decided to take advantage of one of the regions fab all weather attractions and will be visiting Cosford Air Museum on Weds 22nd Feb.

We are keeping this one low key and low cost. We therefore are not providing transport, to enable you to join us for as much or as little of the session as you like.

The playleaders will meet families at 10.30 am and we will enjoy the Museum together. There are additional activities on site which families are free to pay for independently and enjoy as they wish.

Car Parking is on site at a cost of £4 / day and whilst there is a cafe, we’d encourage families to bring a picnic so that we can all eat together.

Tickets are just £5/ family and you must book your family on to the activity here
