Mothers' Day Balloon Race
The PTFA are very pleased to be holding a virtual balloon race to celebrate Mother’s Day! We have tried to answer any questions you may have about the event below:
What happens in a virtual balloon race?
Children are invited to buy a virtual balloon, design it by choosing their colour and adding a special message to their Mum, Grandma, or special person and track it as it takes a (virtual) flight over 3 days!
When is the balloon race happening?
The balloon race will start at midday on Friday 12th March and finish on Mother’s Day, Sunday 14th March at midday. You will be able to track their progress as they fly on the race page - https://www.balloonrace.com/AllCanningsSchool and check back here to see the leaderboard!
How can I join in?
Balloons can be bought by simply following this link https://www.balloon.co.uk/allcanningsschool/. You can buy as many balloons as you wish! Online entries close at midday on 10th March 2021.Balloons cost £3 each (discount available for 3 balloons or more) and all profits will go to the All Cannings PTFA fund, which we use to support essential resources and engaging experiences for the school.
Are there prizes for the winners?
We have been very lucky to have been donated some fabulous prizes for this fundraising event from some fabulous local businesses. You can see what their businesses have to offer here:
The first three balloons to cross the finish line will win some very special prizes (along with some sweet treats for children!)
1st prize: Cream Tea for Two voucher for Times Square, a bottle of Prosecco and a beautiful Mother’s Day Bouquet from The Conservatory.
