Despite the current coronvirus situation, staff at Jazz Court in Scarborough were determined to continue their recent Walk for Autism.

The team of 17 staff, known as Jazzy Gems, took part to support one of their team, Linda Shaw, a care and support assistant whose four year old grandson has autism.

The team raised a total of £406 for the charity, which helps to change the lives of people affected by autism across the UK and Ireland.

Linda said: “A massive thank you to all the people who have sponsored us.

The Jazzy Gems were amazing supporting a charity that is close to my heart.”
