This week is Dying Matters Awareness week. On Monday evening staff and volunteers from Balloons were fortunate to attend an event with ‘Grief Works’ author Julia Samuel at Waterstones. Julia’s book ‘Grief Works’ is a new addition to the Balloons resource library so we were so pleased when she announced that she’d be at Waterstones in Exeter to share some of her expertise. The event was very well attended and it was also lovely to talk to so many people who are interested in our work with children and young people locally. It was also a wonderful opportunity to catch up with local charities; Pete’s Dragons, Cruse and Compassionate Friends.
