Halo Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion’s charity spon­sored walk was opened by the Deputy Mayor of Hilling­don Carol Melvin on Satur­day May 21.

The day was a ‘great suc­cess’ which saw a re­lease of colour­ful bal­loons to mark the event at Barra Hall Park.

The charity sup­ports chil­dren and their fam­i­lies who have lost a loved one and holds a monthly ex­pres­sive arts and play group at Uxbridge Col­lege, of­fer­ing art ther­apy, coun­selling and be­hav­iour man­age­ment.
