Build a Balloon

The last 12 months has forced us to become more innovative with our fundraising initiatives. As a result, we have built a real-life Hot Air Balloon to raise money for patient care and family support services at the hospice. The Hot Air Balloon will take to the skies and will be attending hospice events for years to come, including the Oswestry Balloon Carnival. Lastly but by no means least, we would like to thank our main corporate sponsors who have made the balloon a possibility. We could not have got this off the ground without your generosity and we are both thrilled and honoured to have you on board.


We cannot wait to see the balloon flying in all its glory. We would like to extend our thanks to all our supporters, individuals, families, schools, and businesses who got involved – you are all-stars.


We have created this page to keep you updated with the balloons progress and then, looking forward, where the balloon will be flying for you to see it in flight. We will keep this page regularly updated as well as regular emails to the sponsors.

The balloon is now complete and has already made its first flight in the UK which is truly magnificent, we cannot wait for each ballooning season to be taking it to different events up and down the country as well as showcasing it at our very own Nightingale events.

For just £5 you can send your signature high in the sky for years to come!

Don’t worry if you missed submission to the Build a Balloon campaign there is still an opportunity to be part of this very special Nightingale balloon by signing our panels that will travel with the balloon to each event and will be sewn into the balloon at a later date.

If you would like information on where our signature stall will be next held please get in touch by emailing
