2010 will be the year of the 19th
Commonwealth Games and is set to be held in the colourful city of Delhi, India, from 3rd
When given the opportunity to support England’s Commonwealth team at the Delhi Games, Virgin Balloon Flights jumped at the chance to aid fundraising for training and equipment to give our athletes the best chance possible.
With this being the last multi sport event in the run up to the Olympics, to be held right here in 2012, our athletes need confidence and ability to be at their peak to successfully compete for our country. That’s where the fundraising comes in …
Virgin Balloon Flights
have donated flights to the ‘Indian Summer Gala Dinner’ for auction and raffle which is being hosted by former British triple jumper Jonathan Edwards and Olympic swimmer Karen Pickering. Of course the Commonwealth Games president Dame Kelly Holmes will be at the event drumming up support and inspiration for the team.
Amongst auction lots akin to VIP tickets to the F1 Grand Prix paddock, centre court tickets at Wimbledon, signed shorts from David Haye or a helmet signed by Jenson Button, our Champagne balloon rides
will be up for grabs too!
The event will be held at The Grosvenor Hotel in London on 14th
June and you can book your star studded table by visiting the We Are England Website.
