Santa's Grotto
Lapland (virtual)

Need a fun idea for a Christmas present?

How about buying a voucher for the Great Christmas Week virtual balloon race for only £3!

The skill is in choosing a shape, thickness of rubber and, in this virtual balloon race, the colour, which is very important!

Once it is launched from Santa 's grotto in Lapland a computer simulation based on real time weather conditions  will take it wherever the wind blows

If you want, you can follow its progress with real time updates every fifteen minutes. Why not get the family involved with charting the balloon's journey on your own map and include things like its position in the race and photos of the places the wind has taken it?

All profits (£2 per balloon) to go local charities so why not buy a present that is a little bit "different" and  makes  a "difference " to those in need?
