Friends of Thorpe School Association (FOTSA)

Welcome to the Friends of Thorpe School Association (FOTSA) balloon race page!

We are excited to join the Christmas balloon race again this year!

Will your balloon go further than Mrs Southgate’s? Will it get to darkest Peru or sunny Cape Town, or will it fizzle out over the North Sea?

It’s so easy to join in with the fun:
1. Sign-up and create your winning design
2. Wait for Santa to launch the race from Santa’s Village in Lapland at 12pm on Christmas day.
3. Track the real time progress of your balloon with your friends and family over the next 7 days and keep your fingers crossed that your balloon will beat the elements and emerge the winner!

Buy or gift your balloon now – balloons cost £3 and every purchase raises £2.50 for our school. This year our fundraising target is £1000 which will go towards vital classroom supplies and a new outdoor reading cabin :)

For every balloon purchased, you will have a chance of winning the below main race prizes… and of course bragging rights!
- 1st prize – £500 cash
- 2nd prize – Apple iPad
- 3rd prize – 10 lucky winners of £10 book tokens

In addition, the winner at Thorpe School will receive a Selfridges Classic Selection Hamper worth £75 - courtesy of our kind sponsor Vantastic UK, and the runner up will win this years Harrods teddy bear Angus!

Please note that as this is a virtual balloon race it is environmentally friendly with no danger to wildlife and no litter.

Thank you for support…. GOOD LUCK!!
