We are all guilty of sometimes taking our friends for granted and failing to realise the true value of having people who are there for us when we need that extra support. Imagine not having those friends there to offload onto, ask for help or generally just chat about how you are doing.

James Weir from Bolton suffers from Autism and finds it very difficult to make friends and socialize. His older sister, Lucy, found it very upsetting to see James unhappy and lonely, so a month before his 21st birthday, Lucy took to Facebook to share James’ story, asking for people to surprise him for his birthday by sending a message or a card to James.

Since sharing the post, Lucy has received hundreds of messages for James and someone has even sent a birthday card all the way from America!
