The Friends of Lyndhurst

Welcome to the ‘The Friends of Lyndhurst’ FIRST-ever Virtual Balloon Race – We would love you to take part in our Halloween fundraiser! This Balloon race is Virtual, so totally environmentally friendly and there is no risk to any wildlife!!!

Star Prizes for all charities joining the race are:
1st - £500
2nd – iPad
3rd – 10 x £10 book tokens.

In addition to the above prizes the Friends of Lyndhurst will also be awarding;
£50 cash to the first Lyndhurst balloon
£25 Pizza Express vouchers for the 2nd Lyndhurst Balloon
£10 Amazon voucher for the 3rd Lyndhurst balloon.

Click on the BLUE bar below to buy as many balloons as you like. Each balloon costs £3. You can name and customise every balloon you buy creating much excitement within your household as you track your balloons daily. For added competition and excitement you can also alter your balloon’s parameters at any time before the start of the race to help increase your chances of winning.
Buy your balloons by FRIDAY 30th OCTOBER 2020. The 7 day simulation race goes live at 0900 on SATURDAY 31st OCTOBER 2020 you can watch on Google maps as they all leave Dracula’s castle and fly to wherever the current weather conditions take them! The computer software uses current live weather data to determine the progress of each virtual balloon. There is no limit to the amount of balloons which you buy, the more you purchase the greater your chances of winning one of the fantastic prizes.
Every balloon you buy will make a difference to the profit which the FoL make from the race and we will update the leader-board as the race progresses.

Due to COVID – 19 we sadly have had to cancel all the events that were planned for the end of the school year 2020/21 and this Autumn term. Whilst we fully appreciate and understand that this is a very difficult time for many, we do hope you will join in to help us start fundraising for the new school year.

Last year the FoL were able to provide the school with a very eye catching trim trail. This was just the start of the project and with your help we are hoping to expand on ‘Project Playground’ and extend the trim trail further this year.

If you could share this event with your family and friends, we would really appreciate it.

Our target is to sell 100 balloons – so please help us achieve this goal.

Thank you for your support!.

Our fundraising target is: £300

Gross monies raised so far: £609

Supporters so far: 50
