TalkTalk has achieved a major charity milestone – the internet service provider has now raised £1 million for Treehouse.

The broadband provider is a long-term supporter of the autism education charity, and organises regular fundraising events in support of its activities.

Commercial Director Tristia Clarke explained that a recent charity dinner and auction held at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium tipped the cash fund into seven-figure territory.

A number of well-known faces were present at the event, including former Gunners centre-forward Alan Smith and Spandau Ballet front-man Tony Hadley.

"We want to thank everyone who attended for their generosity and Arsenal for being such great hosts on the night," Ms Clarke said.

"These funds are crucial for allowing TreeHouse to continue and expand its work raising awareness of autism across the UK, as well as developing the school it runs in north London for children with autism."

Money raised by TalkTalk goes towards the operating of TreeHouse's Talkaboutautism site, which acts as a support network and advice hub for anyone affected by a child with autism.
