Today, VIP Balloon Artist, Samuel Stamp-Dod is locked up in a ‘cell’ within Barclay’s Bank in Ipswich and needs to raise £300 ‘bail money’ to escape.
Money can only be raised on the day using social media, contacts and donations from the public. All the money raised will go to help Papworth Trust, a leading disability charity here in the UK.
Papworth have agreed that the money donated through the ‘I’m a balloon artist’ appeal can go directly towards the Ipswich Youth group. Meeting each week for disabled young people between 14 and 25 years old, the group offers the young people to be themselves in a safe environment as well as giving their family ‘time off’.

For those of you who have donated, thank you – from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
