Autism Rocks, based in London, is a charity organization that raises donations for autism research. PR Newswire reports that Autism Rocks has added Will and Pete Best as members on its Board of Trustees so they can help achieve all goals projected for the charity.
The founder, Sanjay Shah, started this organization in 2014 after being informed that his youngest son was diagnosed with this condition in 2011. Autism Rocks involves music to raise awareness, organizing music festivals that has featured many popular singers, and destine their donations to the Autism Research Trust (ART) based in Cambridge University. Autism is a disease found in 1 in every 68 children and affects mainly social and communication skills.
Sanjay Shah believes that the Best brothers’ experience will benefit the organization’s affairs, funds, events and also the administrative process. They will also have an active participation in the Board so they can accomplish Autism Rocks’ short and long term goals.
The Best brothers have demonstrated that their impeccable qualities will help understand the organization’s mechanism and will assist in the improvement of Autism Rocks.
