Balloons to Remember – Let’s Fill the Sky with Love

12 September, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 19 September, 2020 @ 3:00 pm

Balloons to Remember is a VIRTUAL balloon race to remember loved ones and support St Mary’s Hospice
Create your own virtual memory balloon, decorated with the name of your loved one and colours of your choice, then send it virtually soaring.
It was with such a heavy heart that we had to cancel our beloved Walk 2 Remember this year. We recognise just how important this event has become over the years with our loyal supporters, so we were determined to find an alternative that allowed our local community to come together to remember and celebrate the lives of their loved ones.
Although we appreciate it’s not the same we are pleased to announce “Balloons 2 Remember”. Balloons 2 Remember is a virtual balloon event that will be launched VIRTUALLY from St Mary’s Hospice building on Sat 12th September at 12 pm. You can personalise your balloon with the name of your loved one decorate it with colours and patterns of your choice. You can then track your balloon as it soars high for 7 days, and even be in with a chance of winning a beautiful bouquet from Floral & Hardy Ulverston.
Everyone is welcome to dedicate a balloon in memory of someone special, you do not need to have taken part in Walk 2 Remember previously, or used any of the hospice services. We would just like to fill the skies with memories and love.
