Balloon release marks disability awareness week
STAFF and patients at Lexden Hospital released colourful balloons to mark Learning Disabilities Awareness Week.
The balloon release, which was attended by Colchester MP Sir Bob Russell, symbolised letting go of the stigma which people with a learning disability often face.
It was one of many events organised by Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust, which provides specialist learning disability services in North Essex, to mark the week during August 19-25.
