The Friends of Hungerford Primary School (formerly PTA) is a charitable organisation formed by parents, which aims to support Hungerford Primary to achieve its goal of providing the best educational experience for our children. We work in cooperation with the school to identify ways in which we might provide support, both financial and practical. We fund-raise, make grant applications and try to find skilled individuals who can provide an invaluable service to the school. We are also keen to support parents directly with practical solutions
In addition to supporting the school in its everyday needs we are currently working to build relationships between the school and other Hungerford based groups to raise the profile of the school in the community
Our children, our community, our future. A group of people coming together for the benefit of Hungerford Primary School children.

OUR VIRTUAL BALLOON RACE
Welcome to our Christmas day celebrations Virtual Balloon Race – a computer simulation race where everything is real except the balloon! It’s 100% eco-friendly with no risk of harm to wildlife.
Each virtual balloon costs just £3 and you can buy as many balloons as you would like.
Setting off from our School, the balloons will be ‘released’ on Christmas Day at 12pm (noon) and race for 7 days.
Enjoy taking part in this fun event from the comfort of your own home and track your balloons live as they gently float across the virtual sky. The specialist software uses live weather data to determine the progress of each balloon and they can be tracked on Google Maps and satellites once the race has launched.
Winners will be contacted directly and announced on our social media platforms within 5 working days.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Simply sign-up (so we know who you are if you win), once you've paid for your balloon you can then name, personalise, and decorate your balloon via your dashboard by choosing the shape, colour, and pattern, plus the helium content and rubber thickness.
A BALLOON FOR YOU, A BALLOON FOR ME, A BALLOON FOR OUR FAMILY
Your balloon can be in memory of someone special, to celebrate Christmas, or just for fun!
Virtual balloons can even be gifted and make a perfect 'virtual' gift. Choose to support Hungerford Primary School whilst buying a fun and unique Christmas gift.
To buy a balloon as a gift, once you've signed-up, simply purchase a balloon activation code for £3 each and either send the code to your family and friends for them to activate or print it off, pop it in a card or wrap it up for a lovely Christmas surprise. To join the race, gift codes must be activated by 11.30am on Christmas day. The gift recipient can decorate, name, and track their balloon themselves. They may even win a prize!

PRIZES TO BE WON
NATIONAL STAR PRIZES - for the top 12 balloons travelling the furthest from all charities joining this race:
* 1st prize - £500 cash
* 2nd prize - Apple iPad
* 10 x £10 national book voucher

HOW YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The vital funds you raise ensure we can continue to offer support and virtual resources to our School.
We are hoping with the funds raised we are able to provide outdoor play equipment so very much needed to encourage teamwork, imagination and inclusion for break times.
Please share our Christmas Virtual Balloon Race with your family, friends and colleagues and invite them to support thier local school with the purchase of their balloons.
