SISTERS Arlene and Emma Montgomery and their mum Caroline Payne are appealing for items to sell in aid of a local charity.

The sisters, who both have sons with autism, want to raise cash to help AutismAnglia a charity which has helped with support and advice since their children were diagnosed four years ago.

Both boys are aged seven and both were diagnosed with autism around the age of three.

Arlene, whose son James is a pupil at Marshland St James Primary School, explained AutismAnglia run workshops and also a help-line for parents and as well as adults with the condition.

“They have been brilliant. They can point parents in the right direction and give support when it is needed. We have been lucky as our sons have had a lot of help but not everyone has that kind of support,” explained Arlene, of Marshland St James.

The family are planning to run a stall at a car boot sale being held at King’s Lynn Auction site on November 27 and are asking for quality second hand items to sell.

“AutismAnglia is a vital support for so many parents and we just want to give something back for the help they have given us,” said Arlene, whose sister lives with her family in King’s Lynn.

Anyone wanting to donate items can either drop them into the Fenland Citizen office at 11 Union Street, Wisbech or call Arlene on 01945-430952 or Caroline on 01945-582591 to arrange collection.
