EXETER RESPECT FESTIVAL – 11 & 12 JUNE
The Balloons team and Michelmores volunteers are looking forward to having a stand for the first time at Exeter Respect Festival, held in Belmont Park on 11th and 12th June. Come along and say hi. We have lots of canvas bags to decorate with glitter glue, fabric pens and other crafty things which you can put all the festival things in. We also have some beautiful bunting to sell which has been made by volunteers out of reused charity t-shirts modeled below by Balloons CEO Sara and our Agency Trainer Donna.

This puts us in an fantastic position to help charities and projects that would otherwise struggle to raise awareness. We’re so pleased that we’re able to support BALLOONS (DEVON) this year.”
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
