LPUK have registered for the Virtual Coronation Balloon Race, set up by Eco Racing, to raise funds for LPUK. We would love you to enter a balloon, and share the idea with your family and friends, to help support LPUK.
You can purchase a balloon for £3, decorate it and 'fill it' with as much or as little helium as you like, this balloon will then take part in the virtual race starting from Westminster Abbey on 2nd June, where it will 'travel' for 7 days and the one which has travelled furthest, will be declared the winner. You can track your balloon on its journey. There will be prizes for first, second and third place arranged/given by Eco Racing.
All information of how to enter can be found on the Eco Racing website, along with information about prizes and how the race works.
Please note: this is a simulation race, there will be no actual balloons released. More details of how this works can be found on the Eco Racing website.
Feel free to share this with family and friends, anyone can support LPUK and will go a long way to supporting our members.
Thank you,
Little People UK
