Autism fundraisers throughout the summer

Local autism fundraiser Fran Duncan will be canvassing throughout the summer.

This weekend, she will be at Heaven on Earth in Qualicum Beach (July 15 and 16).

Her goal is to raise awareness and funds for autism as they gear up for the walk in Vancouver in September.

Fran and her family take part in the walk as team Adian’s Avengers on behalf of her grandson Aidan who suffers with the disorder.

There will be a bottle drive at the Wembley Mall White Spot from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, July 23. The restaurant is donating coupons for 15 per cent off a meal for anyone who donates.

There will be another bottle drive August 20. Bottles can also be dropped off in the team’s name at the bottle depots in Parksville and Qualicum Beach and Fran will consider picking bottles up from Oceanside homes, call 250-752-3744 to make arrangements.
