Robin Hood Primary School


Welcome to Robin Hood Primary School's first ever Virtual Balloon Race.
We’d love you to take part in the Christmas Shopping Race! This is virtual, so completely environmentally friendly and there is no risk to wildlife!!!

Starting at Harrods in London it will be a 7 day race launching on Tuesday 1st December 2020, which uses live weather data to determine the progress of each balloon and each entry can be tracked on Google Maps and Satellites once launched.

The winner of the race is the balloon that’s flown the furthest in ANY direction!

There are National Star Prizes (for the balloons that fly the furthest, from all charities joining this race):
* 1st: £500 cash prize
* 2nd: iPad
* 10 x £10 book tokens

There will also be a prize for the winner in each class!

Each balloon costs just £3 and you can buy as many balloons as you want to increase your chances of winning.

You are able to change the colour, shape and pattern. The direction and distance the balloons fly is based completely on the way you customise your balloon, and the weather during the week. Other hazards can also affect your balloons flight such as low flying geese if your balloon doesn't have enough helium!

Please do share our virtual balloon race with as many friends and family members that you can (you can even gift balloons!) and we thank you all for your ongoing support for our school.

Our fundraising target is: £250

Gross monies raised so far: £261

Supporters so far: 25
