Aldryngton Primary School PTA


Our fundraising has been badly affected this year with the cancellation of so many events. This virtual balloon race is something we've not done before but it's a fun and environmentally friendly way of celebrating the end of this academic year whilst raising much needed funds.
Buy balloons for £3 per balloon. There is no limit to the number of balloons you can buy.
Once purchased you can personalise your balloon to make it totally unique.
Balloons will be launched at 12pm on 8th August from Timbuktu in the Sahara Desert. Using real time weather, the balloons will be blown far and wide over 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? The Aldryngton balloon that travels the furthest will win a prize.
Every single donation or balloon entry will make a big difference.
If you could share this event with your family and friends, we would appreciate it.
Good Luck Everyone!

Our fundraising target is: £500

Gross monies raised so far: £300
