Mum overwhelmed at support for iPad campaign
7:00am Wednesday 25th September 2013 in NW
A MUM from Tyldesley has been overwhelmed by the support she has received trying to get iPads for autistic children.
Annette Jackson is collecting old mobile phones to swap for iPads for her autistic nephew Karl and other children affected by the condition in the area.
Annette and fellow mum, Caren Taylor, have collected 300 of their target 360 phones in the hope of getting two iPads, the other for Caren’s son Reiss, from the Hearts and Minds scheme.
Annette said: “The support has been amazing, phones have been shipped over from Thailand to help us. We are still collecting old mobile phones to finish our campaign and then want to carry on to help more families who have children with autism get a much needed iPad as well.”
Two iPads were also directly donated from Manchester-based AB Sundecks who no longer needed them.
Phones can still be dropped off at Tyldesley Post Office and BJ's bingo in Leigh.
