Thumbs up… up… and away!

There isn’t much that I’ll drag myself out of bed at 4.45am(!) for… maybe an early flight to somewhere hot or a significant cash incentive.  But that’s exactly what happended on Saturday 8 August.  As my alarm went off I groaned and peered out of the bedroom window.  The sky was clear and that meant one thing… in just over an hour’s time up to a hundred hot air balloons would be setting sail over the Bristol skies!

Make Your Mark took over the Bristol Balloon Fiesta as we collected a record breaking 21,000 thumbprints at the event.  The breathtaking sight of our amazing Make Your Mark lantern surrounded by balloons of all shapes and sizes was enough to stop everyone in their tracks.  No wonder so many people were inpsired to take action.

There are still two Make Your Mark events left this summer, V Festival in Chelmsford (22 & 23 August) and Bestival on the Isle of Wight (11 – 13 September).

That’s plenty of opportunity for you to Make Your Mark too!
