Oh yes, it's back!!! How would you like to fly your very own balloon from Dracula's Castle, in a race against Mr Napier and all your friends?

We thought it was about time we all had a little fun, and we'd love you to take part in this years Halloween Balloon Race fundraiser! This is virtual, so totally environmentally friendly and there is no risk to wildlife!!!

National Star Prizes (for the balloons that fly the furthest, from all charities joining this race):
* 1st: £500 cash prize
* 2nd: Apple iPad
* 10 x £10 book tokens

There will also be AMAZING PRIZES EXCLUSIVELY for our furthest flying Balgreen Balloons!!

Each balloon costs just £3 and you can buy as many balloons as you want to increase your chances of winning. Every balloon really will make a difference.

Setting off from Dracula's castle, it's a seven-day computer simulation race where everything is real except the balloon. The direction and distance the balloons fly is based completely on the way you customise your balloon, and the weather during the week. Other hazards can also affect your balloons flight such as low flying geese if your balloon doesn't have enough helium! The winner of the race is the balloon that’s flown the furthest in ANY direction.

You can buy a virtual balloon for just £3 and give it a name, colour, shape and pattern. The software designed to run the race uses live weather data to determine the progress of each balloon and each entry can be tracked on Google Maps and Satellites once launched. You can alter your balloon’s parameters at any time to increase your chance of winning.

Please do share our virtual balloon race with as many friends and family members that you can (you can even gift balloons!) and we thank you all for your ongoing support for our school fundraising.

Our fundraising target is: £1000

Gross monies raised so far: £129

Supporters so far: 18
