Balloons charity blown away by Basepoint donation
Basepoint Exeter recently donated £1,070 to local charity and licensee, Balloons, after match-funding the proceeds of a grand draw organised by Balloons which took place in the summer. Agnes Wojnicka, Assistant Manager at Basepoint Exeter, was delighted to present the cheque to Jenny Pheby, Fundraising and Development Manager at Balloons, and Family Support Co-ordinator and Trainer at Balloons, Deborah Butler.
Agnes Wojnicka comments: “Balloons is Basepoint Exeter’s chosen charity, and we were thrilled to surprise them with this cheque at our recent coffee morning. Balloons provide pre and post-bereavement support to children and young people in the Devon area, and we hope this donation enables them to continue their amazing work.”
Jenny Pheby adds: “Basepoint Exeter has been so supportive of Balloons over the past couple of years, and we are very grateful for their continued help and generosity.”
