A Hornchurch theatre has received a special award for backing a small charity that supports families with autism.
Queen’s Theatre in Billet Lane, Hornchurch housed an arts exhibition by Romford Autistic Group Support, (Rags) for Autism Awareness Month in April.
This year, Rags presented their Autism Awareness Award to the Queen’s Theatre on Saturday, April 28, for its continued support to Rags over the years.
Speaking on behalf of Rags, Jackie Perryman said: “The art exhibition has been held regularly almost every year at the Queen’s Theatre.
“It is a very valuable event to us and all helps to raise awareness of autism within our community.”
