The Entertainer, the family-owned high street toy retailer has announced a partnership with the National Autistic Society (NAS), the UKâ€™s leading charity for autistic people and their families to support World Autism Acceptance Week.
To mark World Autism Acceptance Week (28 March â€“ 3 April), The Entertainer is donating 10% of all profits of Ready Steady Dough lines sold both in-store and online at TheToyShop.com to the NAS until Sunday 3rd April.
The Entertainer has an Autism Friendly Award from the NAS for its commitment to supporting autistic customers and their families, and offers a quiet hour each morning across its 184 stores, in which music is paused and lights are dimmed where possible, to create a calming environment.

â€œWeâ€™re delighted to be supporting World Autism Acceptance Week again this year, and are extremely proud that the donations from the Ready Steady Dough lines will enable the NAS to continue providing invaluable support for autistic people and their families.â€
