Red Balloon Worthing wish list

Picture to illustrate fixtures, fittings and furniture wish list for Red Balloon Worthing

Thank you message from founder, Carrie Herbert:

“Thank you for your interest in helping to create the perfect learning and therapeutic environment for Red Balloon students in Worthing. Can you help with any of the following? The list below is not exhaustive, but gives a flavour of the sort of homely feel that we’re trying to create for children who need a calm, welcoming environment in which to rebuild their self-esteem, resume their studies, learn to trust and be around their peers again. Together, as a community, we can help vulnerable children get their lives and learning back on track, so they can go on to thrive and find their place in the world. Thank you so much.”

If you can help with any, please contact Nick Munday on 07710 013893 or nick.munday@talk21.com.
