FRANCIS BAILY SCHOOL PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION


Francis Baily PTA have found this new and exciting way to fundraise for our school during these unusual times. Due to the current situation we have not been able to hold some of our usual events and other events have had to be cancelled. This event is a way of being able to bring some fun to the children whilst raising much needed funds for the school.
Welcome to Virtual Balloon Racing! Simply buy a virtual balloon for £3 each to enter the race. Once purchased you can personalise your balloon to make it totally unique.
Balloons will be let off at 12pm on 8th August from Timbuktu in the Sahara Desert. Using real time weather, the balloons will be blown far and wide over the next 7 days. The winner of the race will be the balloon that has travelled the furthest. Where in the world will your balloon end up?

Our fundraising target is: £500

Gross monies raised so far: £108

Supporters so far: 14
