St Basils Balloon Race: Amazing prizes to win for just £3!


We have a new fundraising event to take part in, suitable for people of all ages and involving virtually no effort from you. You don't even have to leave home to do it!

  We also have a special prize for any Secondary Schools taking part - a class trip to Cadbury World! Please contact if you would like to take part as a Secondary School. (Please ask your teacher to contact us if you're a Secondary School student). 

Children under 11 taking part with adult family members can also win a certificate and Basil Bear goody bag if the adult wins one of our main prizes - just let us know and we will oblige.

Balloons cost £3 each and can be bought up until 11am on 1st January. To buy your balloon(s) visit: BUY YOUR BALLOONS HERE!

the race will take place over a week from 1st-8th january 2017! So why not buy some balloons for your loved ones as a christmas present?

Just write a line in their Christmas card telling them you've entered a balloon for them in our balloon race. They'll have great fun tracking it's progress online over the course of the following week! It'll be something for them to look forward to after the excitement of Christmas has faded, and for 3 lucky winners it'll be an extra present! 

Now for the fun part!

Once you've bought your balloons your can customise them fully.  Choose your shape, add colours, stripes, spots and most importantly Names and photos!

 SEE what others have chosen to do!

Also important is what material you choose. Are you going to go for fast and reckless lightweight materials or slow but steady heavy materials? 

Purchasing more balloons means you can select different materials increasing your chances of one of your balloons winning the race - and you winning one of our fantastic prizes! 

other great reasons to take part!

  • Although this is a virtual race it is based on the real weather conditions taking place at the time! This is done using a computer algorithum to work out the progress of your balloon. So it's not just fun but educational too.
  • Throughout the race you will be able to track your balloons' progress online.
  • You'll be helping St Basils and homeless young people as the majority of the fee will come directly to St Basils, supporting our Learning, Skills and Work service, helping young residents get back into education, work and training so they can move on successfully with their lives.

So please buy a St Basils virtual balloon and help young homeless people reach for the sky!
