A special balloon will rise against the spire of Norwich Cathedral tomorrow in support of Beat, the UK's eating disorder charity based in Norwich.
On Monday, hot air balloon pilot Chris Dobson will tether his 'Beat Balloon' at the cathedral to help prove that there is always a life after an eating disorder, having battled and recovered from anorexia.
'I developed an eating disorder in my mid-twenties, and sadly took too long to realise I had a problem and seek help,' he said. 'I decided to 'go it alone' before eventually realising that it would only be through professional support and therapy I would get my life back.
'This project signifies where I'm at, I'm flying again and flying a balloon with the charity who became my friend during recovery.'
Beat's Helplines are open 365 days a year 4-10pm. Call or email 0808 801 0677, email@example.com or for Beat's dedicated Youthline for under 25s 0808 801 0711.
