To mark the end of the school year Friends of Hartford Manor would like to invite you to participate in our ‘School’s Out’ Virtual Balloon Race which sets off from Hogwarts on 3rd July and will last for one week. It’s real, but totally online.

Let’s fill the sky with lots of Hartford Manor family balloons! (There are no balloons so no risk to wildlife or birds). It’s good family fun and almost a 'school day' for the children! You get to design your own balloon online (art lesson), decide on its weight, thickness and shape to enable it to deal with weather conditions on route (science lesson) and you get to follow every day for 7 days as it flies across the UK to wherever the winds take it … (Geography lesson). And, of course you get to support our wonderful School with your £3 a balloon donation.

The monies raised from this event will go towards the MultiPlay Daily Mile Track for our children to use at school.

Don't forget to give your balloon(s) a name so you can spot them when the race starts. Name one for each family member and create your own race as you can see where each of you finish.

The Event Prizes are:

• 1st Prize - £500
• 2nd Prize – Apple iPad
• 3rd Prize – 10 x £10 Book Tokens

In addition to the main event prizes we will also have prizes just for our Hartford Manor community. So, if your balloon is one of the first 3 Hartford Manor balloons to cross the finish line you will win:

• 1st Place – Drink Hamper
• 2nd place – Harry Potter Hamper
• 3rd place – Children’s Hamper

Good luck and please share and invite your family and friends to join the race!

Our fundraising target is: £1000

Gross monies raised so far: £3
