Today's bucket collection: National Autistic Society

City return to Sky Bet Championship action against Middlesbrough today (3pm kick-off), with the fixture raising money for the National Autistic Society Bristol branch.

The National Autistic Society is a donation-funded, non-profit charity, which is run by local parents and volunteers.

Autism is a life-long developmental disability affecting more than 150,000 children in the UK and is considered an ‘invisible’ disability.

Did you know drowning is one of the leading causes of death for autistic children?

To that end the charity has set up Super Swimmers Academy (SSA) so youngsters can learn to swim and gain water confidence, plus SSA Advanced for teenagers who need to improve the four swim stroke techniques.

Your donation will support the charity to fund these vital clubs for another year.

Please see the bucket collectors around the ground today and donate to the cause, if you possibly can.

Thank you.
