Friends of Longworth School
After 2 years of not having a PTA, we now have a new band of volunteers starting the ball rolling to help raise funds for all the pupils that attend the school. The money will go directly to buying new resources for the children in the school to enhance their experiences and make new memories.

In support of the upcoming Longworth Jubilee Street Party, taking place on Sunday 5th June 2022, we’re delighted to invite you to take part in a digital and eco-friendly balloon race!
Hamper prize to the balloon bought to support Longworth Primary school, that flies the farthest.

Prizes for overall race:

- 1st: £500

- 2nd: Amazon Alexa

- 3rd: Book tokens

How do I buy balloons?
Click on the links below to purchase balloons. You can even buy tokens and gift them to others! Balloons are £4 each.

How does it work?

- Design your balloon, including changing flight parameters - balloon helium contents (1 - 5 litres of gas) ; shape; thickness of rubber.

- Watch your balloon launch and race online on the 15th July 2022 at 12pm as part of a wider ‘Schools out’ race, encompassing multiple charities and organisations.

- The tech does the work for you! Balloons are subject to mathematical and physics algorithms to simulate a flight pattern based on your balloon’s individual flight parameters plus the real weather conditions at that actual time such as the prevailing wind speed and current temperature. The advanced computer modelling programme is then linked to a mapping provider and Aeris, a commercial global weather data supplier. We have access to around 12,000 weather stations including Antarctica and the North Pole.

Our fundraising target is: £1000

Gross monies raised so far: £332

Supporters so far: 30
