On Saturday 4th December the winner of the FAIR Balloon Race Prize will be awarded a cheque for £500 at the FAIR Centre, Mount Pleasant House in Markethill. Over 2000 balloons were released at the FAIR fun day on the 3rd of July this year as a fundraiser to support the development of FAIR's Memorial Centre project.
The prize for the greatest distance travelled by a balloon is being awarded to Herbert Anderson from The Birches who is an employee of Craigavon Council. His balloon succeeded in travelling a distance of approximately 700 miles, being sent back to us by Ute Knuppel from the town of Wiegersen in Lower Saxony, Germany. Ute also received a prize in this case amounting to 50 euro.
We would congratulate Herbert on his success and would like to thank everyone that supported FAIR in this event.
