The Engine Shed Project for South London

A new project for autistic children in south London.

The “Engine Shed” project provides a welcoming, safe and relaxed environment for young people on the autistic spectrum to enjoy their interest in trains. They can meet their peers, observe, play, talk and enjoy their hobby, while their parents have a chance to relax, and talk in a supportive atmosphere. There are already Engine Sheds in Reading and Chingford, but we need one in London.

If they can raise £3,000, then south London will have its very own Engine Shed.

To help raise this money, Richard Semmens is walking 175 miles from London to Nottingham! He’s setting off this Friday(18th May) and he should complete the walk in 8 days.
