AROUND 12 months ago, Gary Williams’ started his dream of making disabled children’s birthday parties a day to remember.

Mr Williams, 34, created RFG Parties last year as a way to combine his career with something he was hugely passionate about.

My inspiration came from my work at a school for autistic children; I just wanted to make people smile.

Previously a DJ, he created the character Mr Crumble, and now hosts parties for children and young people with autism and other disabilities.

Mr Williams said: ‘This first year has progressed well and things are really taking off; bookings have shot up, as has interest from larger events.

‘My inspiration came from my work at a school for autistic children; I just wanted to make people smile.

‘The character of Mr Crumble is based on Mr Tumble, the TV character. I wanted to emulate that to create something the kids recognised, whilst putting my own spin on it.’
