Balloons in Warminster for Sean
Emotions ran high at a charity event celebrating the memory of Sean Turner, on what would have been his sixth birthday on Saturday.
The event, at Warminster Civic Centre, included performances by the Military Wives Choir and vocalists Gavin Sheppard and Sian Louise, as well as a balloon release, raffle and auction.
Sean, the four-year-old son of Warminster couple Yolanda and Steve Turner, died in March 2012, six weeks after undergoing corrective surgery for a complex congenital heart condition at Bristol Children’s Hospital.
The event raised £5,300 for the Lifetime Children’s Trust. The auction featuring a signed David Beckham Paris Saint-Germain shirt and a signed cap from Jenson Button.
Mrs Turner said: “It was just amazing and it all went perfectly. There was a great turnout and people were very generous. We are so grateful to everyone who came.
“The balloon release was really emotional and it was a special moment for me and Steve, being able to look up the sky and know up there somewhere was our little boy.
“We have had lots of messages since from people saying how much they enjoyed the evening.
“We will now be able to buy several portable oxygen saturation monitors for the charity.” Charlotte Mole performed a song that she had written specially for the occasion, called Forever in our Hearts, which is now available to buy on CD for £2.
