Robert Hazel, Community Library Manager at Tipton Library, has agreed to take part in our ‘Locked in for Autism’ campaign, which will see him living in full public view at the Tesco Extra store on Birmingham Road, Dudley, from Noon on Wednesday 11th November until 2PM on Friday 13th November.
The former Wodensborough High School pupil is hoping that his efforts will raise more awareness, acceptance and understanding of autism.
The University of Central England graduate says he has plenty of things to keep him occupied during his self-imposed incarceration. As he explained: “Being a librarian I will of course be taking books and other things to read as well as a collection of crosswords and puzzles. I also hope to have a go at making something for the poppy appeal whilst in the box.
Andy Bailey, from Caudwell Children, is delighted that Robert has agreed to take on the challenge. He said:
‘’Robert is a popular chap with a great sense of humour, which I think will prove vital once the challenge starts. The box measures three metres by two metres, so the space is tight.
