So the festive season has started and Virgin Balloon Flights
’ employees put on their dancing shoes for their annual Christmas party. This year’s jovial theme was a traditional children’s party complete with pass the parcel, party food and balloons in a village hall!
There were some interesting renditions on the karaoke, spectacular moves on the dance floor and believe it or not a truly exciting limbo competition. What’s
more we got our Virgin London Marathon
fundraising off to a great start with a Christmas raffle.
With thanks to many wonderful businesses surrounding our Virgin Balloon
headquarters here in Telford, we had a super duper selection of prizes including lovely bubbly and wine courtesy of Virgin Wines
, one month’s free
membership and a gift pack from Fitness First, 3 individual day passes and a back neck and shoulder massage at Nuffield Health Gym and Spar, a month’s free games rental with Blockbuster, a meal for two at one of our gorgeous launch site hotels; Telford Hotel & Golf Resort
, a family pass to Telford Ice Rink
with thanks to Telford and Wrekin Council, a 6 person pass for bowling at TenPin
and a pair of
premier cinema tickets with Odeon!
At just £1 per raffle ticket we raised a fantastic £206 for our nominated marathon charity Hope House Children's Hospice
. Keep an eye on our fundraising efforts on marathon runner Susan Bowerman’s Virgin Money Giving Page
and watch us race towards that £10,000 target. Sue is slogging away at the training now, follow her
progress on her blog virginmarathongirl.
