Holly is a 14 year old girl from Caerphilly, who has a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome, a form of Autism.
Following the amazing success of Holly’s Ball 2011, 2012 & 2013,
Holly Salmon and her Mum Jo and a dedicated team have been busily organising Holly’s Ball 2014 which hosts the Annual Welsh Autism Heroes Awards. The event will take placein the stunning Vale Resort, Hensol, on June 21st 2014. We hope that some of funds raised in 2014 will go towards small projects that would benefit siblings of children with ASD.
The Holly's Ball events team are busy bees getting ready for 2014.
The event is a celebration of Autism and aims to help raise Autism Awareness in Wales. Riley's Wish is a sister event to Holly's Ball for the South West of England. The event fundraises for different Autism related charities/special projects/special schools. For further details on the Autism Heroes Awards and the NEW Award categories please click here.
Holly's Ball has raised over £25,000 for Autism charities since it was launched in April 2010 at the National Assembly for Wales.
"We'd like to say a very special thank you to everyone that helped to make each Holly’s Ball event so special and memorable. Autism is a disabling condition on so many levels, each and every thing a child with Autism like Holly achieves is mountainous to them and to those who know their struggles. These achievements rightfully deserve to be celebrated. Autism should be celebrated. This is the reason for Holly’s Ball".
Jo, Holly's Ball Founder & Holly's Mum!
