Cumbria-Westmorland Federation of WI‘s (CWFWI)


Buy an imaginary balloon (or several), enjoy tracking its progress on maps for a week and support Cumbria-Westmorland Federation.

The virtual balloon race will launch in Lapland at 12 noon on Christmas Day and you can buy balloons up to half an hour before that time. You can choose the shape, colour(s), and pattern of your balloon, write a name or message on it, and alter the thickness of rubber and amount of helium which affect how it "flies" (different weather patterns at different heights), and then watch its progress. All totally imaginary, no litter or harm to wildlife, no use of the earth's precious helium, just a very entertaining computer programme! Winning prizes are £500, an iPad, and 10 x £10 book tokens.

Cumbria-Westmorland Federation supports its members across the region and provides a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and a chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities, such as climate change, mental health, ending modern day slavery and cervical screening.
