Four-year-old Damson Evans and her mum Sophie, 31, will be doing fun run on Sunday to raise money for Home-Start Central Lancashire, which supports local parents and families.Mum Sophie, of Chorley, said: "When we began receiving support from Home-Start, Damson was 9 months old, at first I only attended the groups to help develop friendships and Damsons social skills. At this point I realised I needed extra support at home. "Since then I've been on a life skills development course with Home-Start and many activities such as a day out to Gulliver's World and many seasonal parties. "Earlier last year I went through the training to become a volunteer and group leader. If I can just help one person like I've been helped it will be well worth it."I feel like I've got more of an insight because I've been there myself. I know how hard it is taking that first step and asking for help. If they are too nervous to answer the door for that first visit … I understand that. "Home-Start has changed our life; I'm not quite sure where we would be without them."Every donation counts towards helping local families."
