Basically speaking, a balloon race is where we release lots of helium-filled balloons and see which one travels the furthest.
How does this make money for you? Easy! We provide you with selling sheets in advance of the day and you, and your team of supporters, go off and sell as many balloons as you can. We put a unique number next to the names of those who purchase the balloons and this number is put onto a ticket attached to the balloon when it is released.
We give you all the information you need to help you sell and we only charge once the balloons have been released. As you take the money when you sell the balloons, this means there is no outlay before the event and, as we charge afterwards, there is no worry that you will loose out!
How do we find out our winner? On the ticket, we put a message to the finder telling them that if they have found the winning ticket, then we will send them a cash prize – this encourages the finders the return the tickets to us so we can see where they have flown to.
Is it safe for the environment? YES! We wouldn’t do this if we were not completely sure that our balloon races don’t cause any harm to animals or our planet. We use only latex balloons which are fully biodegradable and tickets printed on recycled card. For full details of how we are sure that we don’t cause any harm, take a look at this page of our website which goes into full details.
We often find that these balloon releases work best if they are tagged onto a fete or fun day. We can release the balloons in all weathers and, as a professional balloon company, we will ensure that any permissions needed are sought before we start.
