Charity Balloon Launch for Alder Hey Children's Hospital 2015

Alder Hey Children's Hospital patients' well wishes messages were sent up to around 100,000 ft in the sky, where they were released. This epic journey was captured in photos and video, which also show the release of the well wishes messages.

Through this event, we managed to raise £914.50 for Alder Hey Children's Charity. Clare White, Chief Executive of the charity said, "On behalf of all our young patients, their families and staff here at Alder Hey, I would like to thank you for your amazing donation of £914.50 which include £752.00 JustGiving and £161.50 Gift Aid. Please convey our sincere thanks to everyone who sponsored your 'balloon near space with cameras' and helped to raise this fantastic amount of money - well done! We really appreciate your help and support."

We'd also like to thank Chris Hillcox from The Near Space Photography for his technical guidance throughout the project.
