AGE UK WALTHAM FOREST


It's the Age UK Waltham Forest Christmas Day Virtual Balloon Race!
Balloon race from the comfort of your own home and help us fundraise so that we can continue to support older people in need.

Our Befriending service is needed now more than ever to tackle loneliness and isolation, and with the demand on our services increasing we are thankful for all your support. We will continue to ensure that we are there for older residents across Waltham Forest.

We are going to release your balloons on-line on Christmas Day, and see which one gets the furthest!

£3 to join in and select your balloon. Your balloon will set off from Santa's Village, Lapland at 12pm on the 25th December, and will fly online for 7 days. The software uses current live weather data to determine the progress of each balloon and each entry can be tracked on Google Maps once launched. So make sure you select the best balloon!

National Prizes: 1. £500 Cash, 2. Apple iPad, 3. 10 lucky winners of £10 Book Tokens
Age UK WF Prizes: The furthest 3 balloons win a Hamper each.
