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
Flights 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.
