EBA PTA


Due to the current situation, many of our fundraising efforts have been put on hold or cancelled including the Summer Fun Day and the School Camp Out. Our school relies heavily on these additional funds to enrich every child's time at school.

This school year we are raising funds for at least 15 children’s laptops, 9 laptops for classrooms/the office and 5 docking stations to connect the laptops to our interactive whiteboard.

To try to fill the gap, we’ve turned to raising money online and this is where YOU can help, by taking part in our Virtual Balloon Race.

There are some great prizes to be won including:
£500 Cash
Apple iPad
10 lucky winners of £10 Book Tokens

The race will 'take off' on 14th September 2020 from Moscow's Red Square. It's a seven-day computer simulation race where everything is real except the balloon.

You can buy a virtual balloon for just £3; customise it by giving it a name, colour, shape and pattern. You can even change the type and amount of air within the balloon.

The software designed to run the race 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.

Purchase as many balloons as you like to increase your chances of winning. Every balloon really will make a difference. Thank you for your support. Good Luck!

Our fundraising target is: £14000

Gross monies raised so far: £291
