CCP Valentine's Day Virtual Balloon Race

Take part in a balloon race with a difference!

It isn’t just love that’s in the air on February 14th this year, the sky is full of balloons too! Following the great success of last year’s event, CCP has organised it’s second annual virtual balloon race. And this time, the theme is love and friendship, a theme that could not be more appropriate in these difficult times we are all living through at the moment.

The race has now finished and the final results are shown below. Congratulations to Kath, Ellie and Elizabeth! You are the winners of all that chocolate.

Thank you to everyone who has bought tickets and taken part in the race. Together, you have raised over £800 which is a wonderful achievement! These funds will be used to provide essential medical equipment for our Home Hospice team in Gomel, Belarus. Our hospice team helps parents look after their terminally ill children at home and the money raised by the balloon race will help make the childrens’ lives as comfortable as possible. So, a big thank you once again!

Here are the final results:


We have delicious luxury chocolate prizes for the owners of the three balloons that have travelled the furthest when the race is over:

First prize: a giant box of luxury Belgian chocolates

Second prize: a large box of luxury Swiss chocolates

Third prize: a medium box of luxury Swiss chocolates
