St George’s School Association


Welcome to Helping Hands at St George’s School Association’s first Virtual Balloon Race! Starts 12 noon, Christmas Day from Santa’s Village, Lapland.

Sadly, due to COVID 19, we have been unable to hold any of our regular events to fundraise for St George’s as we did before the pandemic. This has resulted in a huge drop in funds raised for the school.

Our events help to raise valuable funds to support St George’s limited budget. They subsidise varied projects within school which further enhance and enrich the children’s time at St George’s.

We are currently raising funds for MUCH NEEDED playground equipment in the Junior playground. Unlike the climbing frames in the infant playground,(also paid for by PTA funds some years back) the Juniors have only tyres to play on. We have agreed with the school on plans we want and these are displayed on our Facebook Page, St. George’s Parents Network. The plans really are amazing!!!

Whilst we fully appreciate and understand this is a difficult time for many, we are hoping that this amazing family event will unite family together either in one household or many, it promises to be great fun! As the race starts on Christmas Day, get your family and friends to also buy balloons too and keep in touch with each other with who is winning! There is no maximum purchase, so buy as many balloons as you wish.

We will be part of a national event but we are offering not only prizes for winning St George’s balloons but an opportunity to win prizes in the overall event!

Please share the details of our virtual balloon race with as many friends, family members and colleagues as you can! (You can even gift balloons!)

Our fundraising target for the playground equipment is: £13000
