Sid Valley Rotary Club has donated more than £800 to help fund a bereavement charity’s activity days.

The money will go towards helping Balloons give children and young people an opportunity to experience raft building, paddle boarding, caving, rock climbing and canoeing.

The money was raised from the Rotary club’s Christmas tree of goodwill in Sidmouth.

Office systems and events manager at Balloons, Jo Overton-Pitts said: “We are incredibly grateful to the Sid Valley Rotary Club for its generous sponsorship of our August activity days.

“The Balloons activity days are a very important part of our package of support for bereaved children and young people.”
