“Regarding the funds, we haven’t got any final plans yet as we didn’t know we would be the winners.

“However, we will continue running our monthly support groups for parents and carers in Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield, and we will also be organising other events.”

The coordinators at SPACE are also celebrating a £1,000 donation from the supermarket in June.
