Fife, Scottland – Linda Mcginley, along with her daughters Catherine and Linda, and her boyfriend John, have all gotten inked tattoos to honor Autism Rocks. They did this to not only support co-founder and chair of the foundation Liza Quin, but to also raise awareness and funds for Autism Rocks’s new centre for autism treatment. Linda told Fife Today,
“We started on our Autism journey in November 2013 – our son John Paul was diagnosed at five. We now know and understand how to help him achieve his goals.”
The Port Glasgow resident thinks this all because of Autism Rocks:
“Through the support and advice provided through the group’s members, it has been a fantastic source of help to all,” adding that “Autism Rocks has not only put autism on the map, it has put a life line out there for families on this amazing journey, and for many more in the future.”
Many fundraising events have been held and if Autism Rock’s goal has been met, the center will be built in Levenmouth, a section of Fife.
The Center will be designed with lighting, colors, textures, shapes in mind with soft play ares, illuminated floors, meeting rooms, an outdoor AstroTurf area, and rooms for music and art.
