Clarets Support World Autism Awareness Week
A huge thank you for your support
World Autism Awareness Week took place between 29th March - 4th April and we have been supporting the cause across the club.
The aim of the awareness week, hosted by the National Autistic Society, is to bring about more understanding of the daily challenges that autistic people face and how we can all help.
This includes our autistic fans who join us on the accessibility stand at Turf Moor – our aim is to make sure that any supporters with a disability can have the best matchday experience possible.
We have been involved in various activities over the past week:
Super 7 challenges
Five of our eSports player took part in a 7 hour stream-a-thon relay on Friday and Saturday by playing on FUT Champions as well as some leg waxing, hair dyeing and head shaving thrown in! The lads raised over £600.
Our U23’s were also put through their paces on Friday with a seven move, seven rep workout.
Southampton shirt auction
Sunday's game away at St Mary's Stadium was dedicated to the campaign as the first team squad wore warm up t-shirts in support.
These shirts will also be up for auction on the club website this week - we will keep you updated on the auction in due course.
