Since the COVID-19 lockdown it’s had some massive upgrades and over 50% of the schools & charities that use it come back for more races.

Paypal – We also offer the “Get a Balloon” button where users can buy a balloon, choose the colour & the site automatically adds it. You’ll need to add your Paypal details in the admin area. However – if you sell a balloon for £3 – Paypal takes 39p in charges.

If you don’t have a Paypal account you can sell your balloons in-house and add them 1 at a time manually in your admin area or upload using our CSV templates.

Every race needs to start and finish at 12 midday. If you’re a school here’s a great example letter to help sell more balloons. Most races sell an average of 200 balloons @ £3 each.

As the whole setup only costs £36 (including VAT) there’s plenty of profit to be made.


Kelly - PTA

Thank you so much for the information. Our balloons started on Thursday so have 4 days to go. The kids and adults are really enjoying this PTA event.

We were totally blown away by the support from the families in the school and this event has raised over £1200. We decided not to have a buy now button and asked the children to bring their money into school. Slightly more work for us but your instructions and the spreadsheet made it very simple to upload the details. We also gave each class in the school a free balloon so there will be a class prize for the first one to cross the line as well as prizes for the top 5 winners.
Thank you again and we hope to run this event again soon

Shelley - Loudwater Combined School PTA
Just to say thank you for the balloon race. We sold 478 balloons, which was way beyond what we thought we would do, with the caretaker taking first place.

The school has finally earned some PTA funds to spend, so thank you from all at Loudwater Combined School

Su Bond
Our balloon race was a huge success and we raised a little over £200 after costs, selling almost £250 balloons. Was a great event!

Thanks so much for your help and support! See you next year!
