WORTHING mum Natalie Lomax has handed over money to two charities to thank them for their support.

Both West Durrington Phoenix Youth Group and Worthing Kids and Dapper Snapper have helped the family.

Natalie, of Robin Road, explained: “Two of my children have ADHD, with one also having autism, global delay and muscle and joint weakness.

“Both of these charities help children with additional needs in Worthing and have been invaluable to my sons and us as a whole family.

“They provide youth clubs, days out, holidays, seasonal parties and swimming lessons which help the children’s confidence immensely, not to mention the support and advice they give to the families and siblings.”

She held a coffee morning and raffle at her home on November 20 to raise much-needed funds.

“My way of saying thank you was to hold this coffee morning, where we raised £500, to be split between the two charities,” added Natalie.

Worthing town crier Bob Smytherman joined the family for the presentation on Monday, when Natalie and her sons, Harvie, ten, and Charlie, 12, handed the cheques to the charities.
