A REDNAL playgroup and dance school joined forces to take part in a special fundraising onesie day.

Members of St Stephen's Church's playgroup and Victoria’s School of Dance and Performing Arts donned onesies to help raise awareness and funds for Autism West Midlands.

Youngsters learned about the importance of treating others as they would like to be treated, and that it is OK to be different.

They also learned not to stare or judge children with autism and other disabilities, instead accepting them into their groups.

Julie Kite-Lightfoot, the playgroup leader, and daughter Victoria, the dance teacher, said they were overwhelmed by the response to the fun event and thanked everyone for participating.
