Together with Sinead Miller, the mothers are holding a pamper and shopping event at St Augustine's Church in Birbeck Road, Rush Green on Wednesday, June 5 at 7pm.

Lisa's six-year-old daughter, Charlotte has down's syndrome and started attending First Step when she was six-months-old.

“First Step means a lot to me. They've been a great assistance and support network for us,” said Lisa from Romford.

“Charlotte would use their sensory room at first. The staff really brought her out of herself. Now she'll be turning in six in May and starting primary school at the RJ Mitchell Primary School.

“I'm just grateful that I can do something for them as they've helped me and so many others,” the mother-of-two added.

“People don't need to book, they can just turn up on the day.

“The more the merrier.”

Tickets are £1 for entry for adults and children go free.
