Lego bus helps children with autism at the new Sortified Space in Bourne

Children with autism from in and around Bourne enjoyed a visit from the Lego bus.

The activities took place at the new 'Sortified Space' which is upstairs at No. 2 North Road in Bourne.

Lynne Jones-Wade, project officer for Sortified in Bourne, said: "Our first session was really good and parents said to us that is was well thought out and that there was nothing else like it available for the children locally.

"It gave children with autism the chance to meet other children with autism and they really seemed to enjoy the morning.

"You could see that after a few minutes everyone got into it and the barriers came down."

The session was funded by Tesco Bags of Help Fund and involved experts from Alpha Inclusion.
