THE GERRARDS CROSS CE SCHOOL PTA


Sadly, due to the current situation, we've not been able to raise any money for our lovely school this calendar year. We had lots of fun things planned, not least Party in the Playground and the Summer Social. The school relies heavily on these additional funds to enrich every child's time at school.

To try to fill the gap, we’ve turned to raising money online and this is where you can help, by taking part in our Virtual Balloon Race.
(SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE TO BUY YOUR BALLOON).

There are some great prizes to be won:

£500 Cash
Apple iPad
10 lucky winners of £10 Book Tokens

The race will take place on August the 8th 2020 across the Sahara Desert. It's a seven-day computer simulation race where everything is real except the balloon.

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.

Buy as many balloons as you want to increase your chances of winning. Every balloon really will make a difference.
