Last week, we announced our participation in Shine’s virtual balloon race, a fun way to raise some money for a worthy cause. The charity help to raise money for people in the UK who are affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus and we were keen to support them after being approache
We were given the chance to design our own balloon, choosing everything from the colour and look of the balloon to the material and size as well.
The race set off from New York and the balloon that travelled the furthest, between 1st – 8th September, won a case of champagne.
Unfortunately, we didn’t win the champagne. Our balloon travelled a total of 226.03 miles and popped somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of New Jersey.
The winning balloon travelled an impressive 672.77 and finally popped yesterday somewhere in Boston.
