FRIENDS OF CASTOR C of E PRIMARY SCHOOL


To celebrate the new school year, why not join our virtual balloon race and compete against your family and friends to see whose balloon goes the furthest!

Friends of Castor C of E Primary are volunteers that organise and run various events and fundraisers across the school year.
All parents and carers and wider family of Castor Primary children can join Friends, in fact it really is the case of the more the merrier. Whether you would like to volunteer at an event, suggest a new fundraising idea or get involved further, you are more than welcome. We value your time and every hour you spend volunteering really does make a difference to our children and our school.
Our fundraising has been hugely affected by Corona Virus, so we are launching a very special virtual balloon race to keep you entertained as well as raise much needed funds to support our school.
We are hoping to raise money to continue the ongoing treats for the children as well as the longer term fundraising for outdoor improvements including a trim trail.

Tickets are available until the 13th September as the balloon race sets off at 12pm, on the 14th September, for 7 Days. You can follow your balloon for 7 days using the Google Maps and each balloon is subject to a simulated flight pattern based on the actual weather conditions such as the wind speed and current temperature.

Balloons are £3 each, you can have as many balloons as you like and you can decorate and name each balloon!

Prizes for the Race (across multiple charities)
£500 Cash
Apple iPad
10 lucky winners of £10 Book Tokens

Our fundraising target is: £100

Gross monies raised so far: £348

Supporters so far: 48
