A TRURO woman with autism is impressing bosses at her new job.

Amanda Brill has been volunteering with the Pearl Centre in Truro and is responsible for collecting charity boxes and then counting the donations before the money is banked.

Gavin Pedley, manager of the Pearl Centre, said: "It's wonderful to see Amanda enjoying being an active member of the local community.

"She always turns up on time and is eager to do her job – but only after her cup of tea, of course."

The Pearl Centre is run by Spectrum, a local autism charity which provides free information and resources to local individuals and families living with autism.

Each month Amanda goes to local shops and manages which ones have boxes and when they need to be changed.

To arrange to have a collection box, organised by Amanda, call 01872 278378.
