HELMDON children had a spectacular end to their sports day this week when they released 150 helium filled balloons.

Clare Hedley, from the Friends of Helmdon Primary School helped organise the event to raise money for school funds. Messages attached to the balloons invited the finder to call Helmdon with a reference number corresponding to each child. Mrs Hedley added: “The child whose balloon travels the furthest will get a prize. So far we’ve had balloons found in Suffolk, so we’ve done really well. We’ve got a potential winner but we’re expecting more phone calls.”

Head Jacqui Johnson said is was a spectacular end to the sports day which was won by Venus House.
