AUTISTIC young people are enjoying an updated outdoor space in Alloa thanks to the support of one of the town's companies.

The young people at New Struan School's residential service are benefitting from the upgrades, thanks to the sponsorship of SG Pro Cleaning Ltd as well as the people attending.

The company has been supporting Scottish Autism, which runs the school, with its annual Golf Day since 2013, held a the Duke's Course in St Andrews.

Unfortunately, this year's event had to be cancelled due to coronavirus, however, proceeds from last year have been put to good use with the upgrade completed recently.

Lesley Lee, residences manager at New Struan School, said: "It is a joy to see the ways in which the children love using this new, meaningful outdoor space.

"Particularly during this current climate, it has provided a safe, fun and comfortable space to play and meet important family members too."

And plans are being made to hold the event again on April 23 next year.

Douglas Smith, director at SG Pro Cleaning, added: "It's great to see the funds raised being put to this project.

"The Golf Day we hold annually in St Andrews is a great way, not just to raise funds, but raise awareness of Scottish Autism and the work they do, it's a fantastic day and great fun."
