New Welwyn Hatfield mayor Roger Trigg has named Potential Kids as his chosen charity for his year in office.

The Hatfield-based charity helps neurodiverse (autism, ADHD and related conditions) children and young people - and their families - by running activities like stay and play, computer programming, cycling lessons, and multi-functional sports.
