The Insurance Charities is thrilled to be partnering with Harry Specters chocolates – a social enterprise set up by Mona, Shaz and their son Ash, who has autism.
While visiting a chocolate shop on a holiday in Scotland in 2011, Mona discovered a perfect way of combining her passion for creating positive change for people with autism with her love for chocolate.
Ash came up with the name and a year later, Harry Specters was born – dedicated to crafting delicious chocolates that create employment for young people with autism. They are involved in every aspect of the business – from making and packaging the products to administration, design and photography.
Since the company inception in November 2012, the company has had 260 beneficiaries which mostly includes young people with autism, who have learnt new skills, resulting in increased confidence, hope, and aspirations for their future.
We are excited to be including Harry Specters chocolates in our Awareness Week charity boxes and bags this year, and hope that some of you have been able to sample them for yourselves.
And finally, don’t forget to share your photos of you and your colleagues enjoying your chocolates on social media throughout this week!
