SUMMER VOLUNTEER EVENT
The charity held a Summer Volunteer Event for our Grief Support Workers, staff, Trustees and families supported by Balloons, at Exeter Castle on Sunday 10th July. A huge thank you to Michelmores volunteers for helping on the day, to Exeter Castle for providing the venue free of charge, to Jo from It’s Your Day for providing our beautiful Balloon arch and Bon Gout for providing the food. It was a wonderful afternoon.
I cannot express how much help I received from Balloons. I know that my children and myself would be in an altogether different place if it was not for their sound help and advice throughout the last few months. From the first phone call, I felt as though there was a strong pair of arms holding my family together and those arms belonged to the Balloons team.–Balloons parent
The support worker helped me to understand and deal with my emotions, which was the main thing I was struggling with. I now feel a lot more at peace with myself, the world and my past.–Balloons young person, age 14
The child is back to her bouncing, cheerful self. She said she was less tearful and was able to tell me that it's her Grandma's birthday tomorrow; she smiled and said she hoped the sun would shine because Grandma liked sunny days. Thank you for the invaluable service you provide.–Balloons professional
