A Potters Bar mum has lauded the “amazing” community after fundraising to help her disabled son.
Joanne Worrell, of The Drive, is raising money for her son Harry, 11, who has Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) – a degenerative disease that causes the muscles to shrink and weaken.
She said after talking to the Potters Bar Edition last week, she has received support from shopkeepers, schools and local people – pushing the total so far to more than £12,000.
“I think after getting the support from the community it has put the wind in our sails to keep going,” she said.
