Mass balloon launch helps inflate Burnham charity shop's funds!

More than 250 balloons soared into the skies above Burnham-On-Sea on Friday (May 23rd) when a fundraising balloon race got underway.

Staff at Sue Ryder Care gathered outside their High Street shop, pictured, to release the balloons.

Burnham shop manager Helen Roberts told "BAE systems is supporting Sue Ryder Care as their charity of the year and the balloons have been purchased by employees of BAE."

"The balloon that gets the furthest from the launch site will win its owner a hot air balloon flight."

"So anyone finding a Sue Ryder Care balloon with a numbered ticket attached to it should please contact the number listed as they could make someone's day!"
