CHILDREN of Fiji charity has become increasingly aware of the danger to wildlife from the release of balloons and so the charity directors have decided that the event this year should be a ‘virtual balloon release’.
People will be asked to ’buy’ virtual balloons at a cost of £1.50 each and in a series of public draws held over a period of 2 to 3 weeks in July, the lucky ‘returns’ will be matched to locations along a previously chosen route.
Please contact us on 01300 320433, 07867696702 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to buy virtual balloons or sell some on our behalf.
