The Business Networking group BNI Synergy of Peterborough, did some truly eggcellent fundraising for our charity.  Not only did each and every member bring in an egg during their usual business breakfast meeting, but they also raffled the large egg, seen in the hand of Elaine, CEO, in the picture, and fundraised £68! Pictured right are some boys from the Dr Who club that we run enjoying their Easter chocolate bunnies.



On a sweltering hot Sunday (9 April 2017) Becca Wood ran the Brighton marathon for our charity, and fundraised a splendid £441.20!

“At Teaching Cave we are always keen to support amazing programmes, initiatives, schools and charities. After reading about the great works of ‘Action for Asperger’s’ and the counselling they provide, we wanted to show our support by offering a financial donation. We know that our donation will provide help to those affected by Asperger’s Syndrome and hope the great work of ‘Action for Asperger’s’ continues long into the future.”
