Fans answer the call by wearing the badge with pride

A selection of images posted by fans on Autism Awareness Day

2 April 2020

We asked you to post your pictures wearing blue to support an important cause today - and the response was emphatic!

Using #DonsWearBlueOnApril2, supporters of all ages featured on our official Twitter page and a selection of the images are posted in our gallery above.

Will Nightingale's message of support started the day well and Dons Trust Board members Jane Lonsdale and Graham Stacey also got involved. Fans flooded our social media channel with pictures during the day in a response that did the club proud. 

Rebecca (centre in the below pic) is a season ticket holder who the club has helped to enjoy the matchday experience.

There are around 700,000 people on the autism spectrum in the UK – that's more than 1 in 100, or roughly 40-50 people at every AFC Wimbledon home game. 

AFC Wimbledon set-up it’s Disabled Supporters’ Association two years ago and we also support the Sunflower Lanyard Scheme which provides help for people with hidden disabilities.
