Last chance to sign up for Save Our Hospice balloon race

Save Our Hospice Virtual Balloon Race.
Save Our Hospice Virtual Balloon Race.

The Save Our Hospice Virtual Balloon Race takes place on Friday.

This is the next major event as part of the Lancaster Guardian and The Visitor appeal to raise £500,000 to preserve St John’s Hospice for future generations.

Now is your last chance to buy a ‘balloon’ and watch it fly when the race starts on March 7 with the one that travels the furthest being crowned the winner seven days later.

And whoever’s victorious will win a great family day out courtesy of Megazone, Morecambe Superbowl, Reel Cinemas and Frankie and Benny’s.

But this is a balloon race with a twist - as there are no actual balloons.

Your £3 buys you a card with the unique code allowing you to design your balloon and then follow its progress online when the race starts on Friday, March 7 at 10am.

The balloon race isn’t just for kids, anyone can get involved. To enter the race you can purchase your balloon card for £3 from the hospice reception, any of the hospice’s nine charity shops, the Lancaster and Morecambe Newspapers office at 41, Northgate, White Lund Industrial Estate, Morecambe, or online HERE
