FRIENDS OF WEST WIMBLEDON PRIMARY SCHOOL


Welcome to Friends of West Wimbledon’s first ever virtual Balloon Race – we’d love you to take part in our Summer fundraiser! (There are no actual balloons so no risk to wildlife or birds).

Prizes (for all charities joining the race):
1st - £500 cash prize
2nd - iPad
And 10 x £10 book tokens
Also - the West Wimbledon balloon that travels the furthest will win £50 cash.

Follow the link below to buy and customise as many balloons as you like at £3 per balloon, and watch on Google Maps as they fly across the Sahara desert to wherever the wind takes them. The 7 day computer simulation race starts on 8th August at midday, and the software uses current live weather data to determine the progress of each virtual balloon.

We would normally hold our biggest event of the year, our Summer Fair, close to the end of term but sadly this had to be cancelled as well as the Easter disco and the exciting new sponsored walk/ride which was due to take part in Richmond Park. Many of our families would have supported us by attending these, buying raffle tickets, raising sponsorship and such like. Whilst we of course acknowledge that this is a very difficult time for a lot of families, we are hoping that some of you may enjoy taking part in this fun event from the comfort of your own home.

Please do share our virtual balloon race https://ecoracing.co/user/page/455 with as many friends and family members that you can (you can even gift balloons!) and we thank you all for your ongoing support for our school charity whilst we all continue to navigate through this tough period.

Our fundraising target is: £500

Gross monies raised so far: £456

Supporters so far: 41
