Friends of St Mary’s Primary School and Nursery (FSMS), Gillingham


Welcome to our online balloon race. We are hoping to raise £1000 for our school. As many of you are aware, our Christmas Fayre didn’t go ahead in its normal format due to Norovirus and we have had to cancel our Summer Fayre and raffle due to Covid19. These events help raise invaluable funds to help our school enhance learning resources and the learning environment for our children at a time when budgets are tight and FSMS funds are needed to purchase essential items for school as well as treats. We would normally be asking you to purchase raffle tickets at this time of year but are now having to explore different, online, fundraising activities and we are hoping you will take part in our virtual balloon race by purchasing a balloon, each costing £3 and it can be customised by you! Along with the national prizes available (£500 cash, Apple iPad and £10 book tokens), FSMS will be giving a £50 cash prize to the balloon purchased via our page that travels the farthest. Your continued support, especially in these difficult and unprecedented times is greatly appreciated. Please tell your family and friends about this event and encourage them to take part and join the fun.

Our fundraising target is: £1000

Gross monies raised so far: £555

Supporters so far: 69
