Bristol Balloon Fiesta

Thursday 8th August, 2019
We are the official charity partner of the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta once again in 2019.

Last summer, the Fiesta saw our very own balloon kindly sponsored by Western Power Distribution and loaned by Bailey Balloons take to the skies above Bristol to raise awareness for Bristol's only adult hospice. The Hospice received incredible coverage on TV and radio and from bucket collecting to selling goods on our stands, our volunteers helped us raise an amazing £11,127 towards our Room to Care Appeal.


To make this opportunity a huge success for us again this year, we need lots of volunteers. If you can donate any of your time to us at the Fiesta in 2019, it will make a difference. From Thursday 8 August until Sunday 11 August we will be there and we would love for you to join us. Even an hour is appreciated!  Last year we welcomed children over the age of 6 to come along alongside their grown-ups to help too - and they were brilliant! We need volunteers for bucket collections, selling merchandise, manning our stand and setting up at the event. If you can help, please contact Clemi Williams in our Long Ashton Fundraising office on or call 01275 391404.
