Simply, a balloon release it is the mass release of balloons normally from a net
A message can be attached to each balloon, but unlike the balloon race it is not a fundraising project
The acceptable way to run a balloon race or release is to only use items that are biodegradable. All of our balloon race and release kits contain biodegradable items
Our balloons are made from latex which is a natural product which will break down at the same rate as an oak leaf
In addition there are other real advantages to organizing a balloon release that perhaps do not immediately come to mind. Your local press will certainly attend your event if they are made aware that a photogenic end is guaranteed – a balloon launch can look great in the local newspapers! Local publicity is a most welcome outcome, and whether your event is a balloon race or balloon launch, it will help to raise extra publicity – and hopefully money!
By advertising that balloons will be released from a balloon net at the end of your event you will ensure that visitors stay to see this spectacular conclusion. Sideshows or other money raising methods will continue to make money throughout the afternoon rather than ‘tail off’ as visitors leave before closing.
Links can be made with other schools holding a balloon launch both nationally and abroad
The local community will be aware of your efforts and the image of your school will certainly improve.
Many subject areas within your school will be able to use the balloon release to their benefit – Art, Modern Languages, and Geography to name just three. Balloon launches can be educational as well as fund-raising events
ABOVE ALL IT WORKS AND IT’S FUN!
Please note there are strict guidelines controlling the release of balloons into the atmosphere. We strongly recommend that only a small balloon release should be attempted without our professional assistance. Small being defined as anything up to 1,000 balloons. The guidelines are designed to minimize the risk of any potential danger to aviation, animals, sea creatures and the general environment
