Green Board Games takes headline sponsor at AKO charity’s Autism’s Got Talent

Green Board Games has further supported the Anna Kennedy Online Charity, having taken headline sponsorship of the organisation’s annual hit production Autism’s Got Talent. The event took place on Saturday, May 4th.

Held at The Mermaid Theatre in London, Autism’s Got Talent presented a showcase of performances from adults and children with autism, with performers ranging from singers and actors, to musicians and dance troupes.

This year’s show was attended by X-Factor’s Gio Spano as well as Katie Price and her son Harvey who were filming her current series of “My Crazy Life”. Harvey expressed the wish to perform at the up-coming St Ives showcase, also sponsored by Green Board Games, underpinning the “Inclusive Play’ philosophy.

Green Board Games’ has supported the charity for a number of years, and exhibited at the Autism Awareness Expo last month at Uxbridge University. The company will be sponsoring the Autism Hero Awards later this year.

According to the firm, games such as My First BrainBoxes, BrainBox Story Cards, Qwirkle, Q-Bitz and many more, as well as Fat Brain’s ‘Sensory Genius’ fidget toys, are all ideally suited to children who have varying levels of autistic spectrum disorder and offer fun solutions for families to play together and encourage learning for all children.

Karen Nunn, of the Green Board Game Company, commented: “We are thrilled to be able to continue our support for the Anna Kennedy Online charity at this awe-inspiring event. At Green Board Games, we are dedicated to providing inclusive play for all, regardless of ability, and we are honoured to be able to assist Anna and her team in raising awareness of ASD and promoting inclusion of individuals on the spectrum or with any disability.”
