FRIENDS OF THORPE HALL VIRTUAL BALLOON RACE! (CORONATION RACE 2ND JUNE 2021)


Thorpe Hall Primary School is located in Walthamstow, North East London. Friends of Thorpe Hall (FOTH) is a group of volunteers who organise events such as discos, Christmas bazaars and summer fetes to bring the school community together. In doing so, we raise money to buy books and other equipment for the school. During the Covid-19 pandemic we have not been able to hold any in-person events and we have had to find more creative ways to raise money.

2nd June 2021 is the 68th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation and to mark the occasion we will be joining forces with other charities by taking part in the Coronation Race - a virtual balloon race! The event is totally Covid-safe and eco-friendly as the event takes place entirely online!

The race starts at 12pm on 2nd June and runs for 7 days. The virtual balloon that "travels" the furthest wins! Virtual balloons can be purchased for £3 each from now until the start date by clicking on the Blue "Buy Balloons" Ribbon below

By joining in the fun, you will be in with a chance of winning one of these top national prizes:

• 1st Prize - £500 Cash
• 2nd Prize - Apple iPad
• £10 Book Token (10 available)

And the following prizes will be awarded for the furthest balloon flights amongst our supporters:

1st Prize Amazon Fire tablet (kindly donated by Stow Brothers)
2nd Prize £50 cash (kindly donated by Providus Financial)
3rd Prize Alexa speaker (kindly donated by Stow Brothers)
4th & 5th Prize Book tokens (kindly donated by V&A books)

When designing your virtual balloon, take extra care to choose the right materials and configuration as these will help or hinder your chances of winning the race. Real-time weather may also affect your balloon’s journey.

Don’t forget to track your balloon's progress by logging into your Dashboard.

Good luck!

Our fundraising target is: £450

Gross monies raised so far: £144
