A NEW club for autistic children has been launched in Bury St Edmunds after the local community donated toys.
The West Suffolk branch of the National Autistic Society (NAS) has started a Lego club, allowing children to socialise with others while creating structures.
Jo Hyndman, branch officer, said: “This offers them the opportunity to be with other children and do something that they enjoy. It allows them to be creative and take part in something that is a social activity.”
The club runs one Saturday a month at the Hyndman Centre.
The branch launched an appeal to collect the Lego from donations through a bin in Bury St Edmunds Tesco.
