Minstead Trust Olympics Balloon Race


We're raising money to support people with learning disabilities so that they can thrive and live happy, healthy and confident lives.

The pandemic has been difficult for everyone but in particular for vulnerable people in society. The people we support want to get back to normal, to get out and about again, but need extra help and support to do this, as many are nervous and anxious, or have lost vital skills in independence. By purchasing your balloons today you could be helping someone with a learning disability to pursue their hobbies, attend drama sessions that help unlock their potential, or receive additional emotional and wellbeing support.

Your ticket purchase today will mean that for every £3 balloon bought, Minstead Trust will receive £2.30 of this.

Overall race prizes include £500 cash and an iPad and by buying your tickets here, as one of Minstead Trust's supporters you also have the opportunity to win a £50 Amazon gift card, and local visitor attraction vouchers.

Remember you can customise your balloons, name them, choose how inflated they are - which could help or hinder their progress, so have fun designing and good luck.

Winners will be notified by email.

Our fundraising target is: £1000

Gross monies raised so far: £612

Supporters so far: 48
