Up goes the tree!

Children and families we have supported have joined us to decorate our tree in Princesshay to raise awareness of Balloons!

Children and families were invited to a pottery workshop run by Pebblebed Pottery Studios in Newton Poppleford to make decorations in memory of their loved ones. They made a wonderful array of decorations to take home for themselves, and also some for the Balloons Charity Christmas tree in the Princesshay Shopping Centre in Exeter.

On Monday, the staff team gathered together with some of the children and families to put the decorations on the tree. It was definitely a chilly wind but everyone kept warm with hot chocolate and doughnuts!

Below are some photos of the event and we’re sure you’ll agree that the tree looks fantastic. Thank you so much to all the families that came, to Pebblebed Studios for running the workshop and to Tesco who helped fund this activity.
