LOCAL charity Lucy’s Days Out has a whole host of upcoming events that people can get involved with.
The charity, which organises trips and treats for sick children and their families, will be holding its second annual balloon release at 3.30pm on September 23 at Choristers’ Green in the Cathedral Close from 2pm.
