St Luke's Cheshire Hospice Virtual Balloon Race


*******IN THE JUNE RACE A ST LUKE'S HOSPICE SUPPORTER WON THE FIRST PRIZE OF £500! THE BALLOON SAILED THROUGH THE AIR FINISHING THE RACE TOWARD THE TIP OF GREENLAND *****
We invite you to take part in the next monthly balloon race which leaves Timbuktu in The Sahara Desert on 8 August. Join in and enjoy the fun of seeing where your balloon will be travelling. You can chose the shape, weight, colour and design of your balloon and track it over 7 days, so its great fun for children too. Once your virtual balloon sets on off 8 August it will travel just like a real balloon scientifically affected by the weather conditions. You can follow your own balloon and see just where it is in the race at any time. Its a great geography lesson. You can purchase as many balloons as you wish and they can all be different to increase your chances of winning the prizes.

Our fundraising target is: £1000

Gross monies raised so far: £537

Supporters so far: 85
