Autism Eileanan Siar was recently delighted to present Maureen Macdonald from Riley’s Toys and Gift Shop with their Autism Friendly Business Certificate in recognition of her support for autism and additional needs.
Riley’s - in Cromwell Street, Stornoway – has only been officially open since February and in that time, say Autism Eileanan Siar, Maureen Macdonald has engaged many times with the charity ranging from ideas on what type of sensory toys to stock, to planning and setting up sensory area within the shop, to holding quiet times after school for children to come in.
"This shows how committed Maureen is for inclusion locally, as a charity we are very grateful for her efforts in supporting families and we are sure all parents of Autism Eileanan Siar and the wider community are touched by her kindness and willingness to be an all-inclusive shop. Thank you Riley’s."
