Pumped Up

A team sold over 1500 balloons for £5 with the person’s name and contact phone number attached. As part of a prize draw they got in touch with Airmiles Travel Co, and made a presentation to them about their aims and what Wings of Hope Children’s Charity is all about. In return Airmiles gave the team 3 prizes to give away which included return tickets to Australia, New York and Europe. Before the release they informed the local police and made sure the airways were cleared with the Civil Aviation Authority. The farthest balloon landed in Belgium.
