The Friends of Bawburgh School


With funding for schools tighter than ever before, we the friends of The Bawburgh School are hoping to raise money to buy extra resources to help the children with their learning and make school an enjoyable and fun place to be. This is more important than ever with the restrictions covid regulations have placed on schools, and we hope with our fundraising we can help support the children with the new normal. Halloween Virtual Balloon Race

Starts at Dracula's Castle at 9am

on 31st October 2020



All virtual balloons will be released from Dracula's castle. What follows is a seven-day computer simulated balloon race where everything is real except the balloon.



The balloons will – virtually – fly for many hundreds of miles from the launch point following the actual weather conditions on the day, and contestants can follow their balloons progress online via Google Earth.

You design your balloon at the start, selecting it’s thickness and the amount of helium in it to give it the best chance of being a winner (although be careful, a balloon could 'virtually burst’ if it flies too high!). You also choose it’s shape and pattern.

Please support the Friends of Bawburgh School buy buying a balloon (or several!), they cost £3 each.

The overall winner will win £500 and the runner-up an Apple iPad. There are a further ten prizes of £10 book tokens. Despite there being balloons from other good causes in the same race, the Bawburgh balloon which goes the furthest will win a special local prize.

Please log on here to buy your balloons before 31st October https://ecoracing.co/user/page/701

With funding for schools tighter than ever before and our usual fundraising options limited, we really appreciate your support of our fundraising efforts. Money raised at the moment is going towards some new Ipads, a visualiser for each class (they project an image of an object, document, picture etc. onto a screen), and a piano. We really hope with our fundraising we can help support the children with the new normal.

Our fundraising target is: £300

Gross monies raised so far: £195

Supporters so far: 21
