Towerbank Parent Group


We're nearly at the end of what has been probably the most strange school year and a half we've experienced.
We really hope that things can start to get back to normal from August, and that the school community can resume many of the usual things which the TPG helps to pay for - such as theatre trips, the book festival visits, or the Scottish Opera experience.

Our ability to fund-raise has been severely hampered by the pandemic, but we now want to try to get some money in the pot for next term so we can fund these important extras once we are allowed again.

So we're taking part in the "Schools Out" Virtual Balloon Race

The idea is that for £3 you buy a balloon to enter an online race, which will be following a route on google maps somewhere in the world.

But it's not just luck! You design your own virtual balloon, with the things you think will give it the best chance of survival - such as material it's made of, or how much helium it has inside it.

Prizes for the balloon that travels furthest in the whole race are:

1) £500 Cash
2) Apple iPad
3) 10 lucky winners of £10 Book Tokens

Additional prizes for the further Towerbank Parent Group balloons to be announced!

Our fundraising target is: £500

Gross monies raised so far: £120

Supporters so far: 18
