A mother has spoken of the humbling moment a local business offered to donate a suit for her 6ft 7in son to wear for his prom.

Sarah Welch, 43, of Teal Avenue, Mayland said they were rung out of the blue and asked to call Coes of Maldon.

She said when the offer of the suit came she felt very humbled.

She said: “He was really pleased when I told him that Coes had done this for him, he said it was a really kind thing to do.

“I want to give him the best of everything, the car and the suit, but he said as long as he has a nice suit he doesn’t mind what else he has."
