Dylan Hockley's parents Nicole and Ian strongly support 'A day for Dylan':
"We are deeply honoured that this event is being run in memory of our beloved son Dylan.
"He was a wonderful boy, and with the excellent support of his educators he was making great progress at school and overcoming his challenges. We are excited that the money raised from this event will give other autistic children the opportunity to develop to their full potential."
