Abberley Primary School Friends Association


In light of the current situation our usual plans have needed to change, we usually rely upon our discos, raffles and summer fair to raise significant amounts for the Friends Association to put towards activities and projects and equipment for the pupils at school.
So here’s your chance to take part in a fundraising event for just £3, and we really do mean it when we say every single donation or balloon entry makes a difference.

(SCROLL DOWN TO BUY YOUR BALLOON) If you could share this event with your family and friends, we would really appreciate it – maybe you could have a family competition to see whose balloon travels the furthest? Or can your balloon beat the teachers?! The “Sahara Desert” race will set off virtually from Timbuktu on August 8th.
Schools and organisations from across the UK will compete to see whose balloon has travelled the furthest.
Eco Racing have some great prizes up for grabs!

First Prize - £500
Second Prize - Apple Ipad
Runners Up - Ten Book Tokens

It's a seven-day computer simulation race where everything is real except the balloon. (Eco Friendly!)

You can buy a virtual balloon for just £3 and give it a name, colour, shape and pattern.

The software 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.

Our fundraising target is: £500

Gross monies raised so far: £228

Supporters so far: 19
