SHERWOOD PRIMARY SCHOOL (Supporters of Sherwood)


Looking for something Spooktacular to do this Halloween?

Challenge your family and friends in this exciting Virtual Balloon Race.

Over recent months, Supporters of Sherwood have had to put events and fundraising on hold. This has had a huge impact on the monies coming in to benefit the school community. As a result, we have looked at new ways to put the fun in fundraising. Monies raised from the Virtual Balloon Race will help us continue to make a difference.

Location: Dracula's Castle
Balloon cost: £3
Race starts: 9am 31st October 2020

Each balloon that you buy can be decorated and named. Follow your balloon for 7 days using 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.

Prizes for the National Halloween Race (across multiple causes)
1st - £500 Cash.
2nd - Apple iPad and
10 lucky winners of £10 Book Tokens

Prizes for Sherwood winners
1st – 2 x tickets to a Preston North End Home Game (2020/2021 season).
2nd - £20 Barton Grange Voucher.
3rd - £10 Booths Voucher.

We hope you enjoy taking part – and we wish you all good luck!


Our fundraising target is: £500

Gross monies raised so far: £645

Supporters so far: 75
