Our first-ever virtual balloon race has now finished!

Thank you to everyone who took part in the EcoRacing Virtual Easter Race last week for the MPS Society. You bought, named and launched 300 colourful balloons which battled to float the furthest over seven days. It was a lot of fun and we raised an incredible £900!


A huge congratulations go to the winning balloons, “SCT”, “Tina” and “Uncle Kevin”. They have each won a lovely bundle of toys.
