Hot air balloon

Ballooning marvellous!

Our hot air balloon

In 2013, the Royal Artillery Balloon and Parachute team gave us the oppurtunity to sponsor one of their hot air balloons. For five years, this hot air balloon was taken on tour, taking in the biggest events on the ballooning calendar including Bristol, Northampton and Leeds balloon festivals.

The Royal Artillery also ran a competition on our behalf, offering rides in the hot air balloon.  

This hot air balloon was also flown by several blind veterans accompanied by Blind Veterans UK staff, some even qualifying as hot air balloon pilots.
