A YOUTH group member is raising money for an autism charity.

Reece Jones, 21, goes to the Colchester Townhouse youth centre and is organising the Townhouse Harlem Shake.

It will see young people aged between 13 and 19, or up to 24 with a special education need, take part in the dance wearing underwater, scuba gear or beach wear.

Reece, who has autism, has chosen to raise money for World Autism Awareness Day.

The event takes place on Wednesday, April 2.

He plans to raise £365.
