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.
Cllr Trigg said he is "looking forward to raising money for such a worthwhile cause".
Angela Gaughan, from Potential Kids, said: "We're absolutely thrilled to have been selected.
"Any donations will enable us as a small voluntary run organisation to improve the lives of local neurodiverse children and enable our community to become even more inclusive."
