A Barnstaple family is hoping to raise awareness of autism and Tourettes syndrome in North Devon.Kelly Toivonen is organising a sponsored walk in March from Barnstaple to Fremington Quay, in aid of Tourettes Action and The National Autistic Society. She was inspired to come up with the event as her brother, Connor Burden, suffers from both conditions. She said: We dont think there is enough awareness of autism and Tourettes in North Devon and we hope this will bring families together. People think Tourettes is just swearing but thats actually only a small part of it. Connors tourettes means his whole body locks up in attacks which happen weekly, often landing him in A&E. His mother, Donna Burden, said: There was a definite lack of support for us and thats what we want to change.Find out more on the tourettes and autism awareness charity walk Facebook event.
