Charity welcomes £1,000 donation from Exeter business
STAFF at the Basepoint business centre in Exeter donated £1,070 to local charity Balloons after match-funding the proceeds of a grand draw.
Agnes Wojnicka, assistant manager at Basepoint Exeter, presented the cheque to Jenny Pheby, fundraising and development manager at Balloons, and Deborah Butler, the charity's family support co-ordinator and trainer.
Agnes said: "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 said: "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."
