BDP at the Fiesta!
BDP staff and volunteers set up camp at Bristol’s annual Balloon Fiesta over the weekend, to offer advice and support around drug and alcohol use.
During the weekend, Ian, our Engagement Worker, was invited to speak to Bradley Stoke Radio, one of our neighbours at the Balloon Fiesta, about the great work he’s been doing with us.
However, it wasn’t all hot air, as other members of the team said they had some great feedback and praise from members of the public. We heard from people who's family members have used our services and who were really glad we could be at such a public event to lend a hand and offer much-needed support.
In between waiting for the balloons to launch and offering help to fiesta-goers, there was even time for some competitive Connect 4 with members of a neighbouring Samaritans stall.
We're already looking forward to next year...
