Step by Step School for children with autism is a charity for children who have severe social and communication difficulties and moderate to severe learning difficulties.

Many have other associated difficulties such as: sensory processing issues, challenging behaviours and food intolerances.

Why does this charity mean so much to you?

This particular charity means so much to me as my son has autism with severe social & communication difficulties and limited daily life skills. He cannot be left unattended at anytime and so support is really essential. This school works tirelessly to make significant improvement in these key areas for the children. It offers hope to many parents and the prospect of a better future for the children. 

How have you supported this charity

This is one of several charities we supported as part of the Keswick to Barrow 43 mile hike. Others include, Antony Nolan Trust, The Rosemere Cancer Foundation, Step by Step, Bonus swimming club and British Heart Foundation. 

The ExCeL London team gave up their weekend and most of the team took two days holiday to travel to the Lake District to take part. Overall we collected £17,523 plus gift aid. This has happened every year since 2006 including the year we all walked in the memory of my brother, who died in an accident at the time.

If anything this is an opportunity to thank everyone at ExCeL London for their commitment over the years. Thank you.
