John Fraser & Son showed their support for local autistic people by fundraising for Autism Initiatives Highland One Stop Shop

September 22nd saw Funeral Directors John Fraser & Son announce the launch of a very special calendar ...

"The moment we’ve been waiting for is finally here – Derek’s ‘2019 Highland Landscapes’ calendars have arrived and they look even better in real life than we had imagined!"

One of the company's funeral assistants, Derek a keen photographer, wanted to raise money for Autism Initiatives Highland One Stop Shop service.  The service which operates across Scottish Highland provides vital services for adults who live with autism, including one of Derek’s grandchildren. 

John Fraser & Sons met all the costs of the calendars, leaving the full purchase price of each one (£10) to go straight to the charity. They said:

"With just 200 available they are sure to sell fast – call into our funeral homes in Inverness or Dingwall to buy yours, call us during office hours, or message us with your full name and email address and we’ll get one (or more!) in the post to you."

The calendar was a huge success and raised £1,500 which will be used to support local autistic people and their families.
